My family member was supported so well at Gould Farm by the 360 degrees of care. At home we could provide therapy and family therapy, but it wasn’t nearly enough to help with the devastating effects of emergent mental health issues. At Gould Farm, the program covered all aspects of recovery and my family member healed well and is still doing well 4 years later. I am so appreciative of the caring staff and well tested program at Gould Farm.
Gould Farm doesn’t refuse to take people who have tried to kill themselves. I know. I applied to the Farm from a locked ward. I attempted suicide while I was in that ward. The Farm was told all about it. They nevertheless admitted me. I knew a number of people at the Farm who had attempted to kill themselves. I would never discourage a person who had attempted suicide from applying to Gould Farm.
Gould Farm is inaccessible to the 99% It is $350 a day and they accept no insurance. My sister has a mental health disability and her doctors encouraged her to apply to Gould Farm for a year. She is a Berkshire resident, so even the local doctors must be unaware of just how inaccessible this organization is. Disgusting.
