Pine Tree Gardens (PTG)

Sadie Shen, MFT, Program Director

Yolo County

Pine Tree Gardens (PTG) provides residential and day rehabilitation program services to 33 adults 18 to 59 who are diagnosed with a serious mental illness.

Begun in Davis by the late Bill and Pat Williams, Pine Tree Gardens joined the Turning Point family of programs in 2007. Our goal is to improve our clients' ability to function in the community by educating them about their illness, teaching effective life management skills, and helping them to gain self-awareness. We encourage them to develop both social and professional support networks needed to increase their level of independence and reduce their need for emergency and inpatient treatment. Pat's daughter Kathy continues her family legacy by providing residents with a fun, vibrant group Sing-along every Friday night accompanied by piano and guitar, fostering a sense of home.

Services include individualized treatment planning, educational and skills development groups, case management, individual counseling, crisis intervention, peer support and assistance with activities of daily living.

PTG has been used as an alternative to inpatient hospitalization, as well as step down treatment following a hospitalization for acute symptoms of a mental illness.
