Bartlett Campus

On this wooded, 82-acre campus just outside of Memphis, boys and girls get the support and treatment they need to overcome serious emotional and behavioral problems.

The Bartlett Campus’ calming setting is home to individual cottages that group youth by gender, age, diagnosis and functioning level. The 10 to 12 members of each group live in the same cottage and spend all day together – attending school, eating meals together and participating in activities as a group.
