Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center Denver - 5th Ave

Located in Denver’s quaint Lowry neighborhood, Pathlight Birch provides Residential support for adolescents and children, ages 8 through 17, in need of higher levels of treatment for mood and anxiety disorders.

Housed in a state-of-the art facility, this is one of our special “patient-picked” centers. Everything from the hanging art to the color of paint on the walls was voted and chosen on from current and former patients to better provide a calming atmosphere. For spaces that are hardest for patients, such as bathroom and dining spaces, we renovated to provide quieter flooring in the hallways and noise-reducers in dining rooms, as well as outdoor-themed and sensory-nurturing natural lighting in the bathrooms.

Founded by a team of leading experts whose goal is to fuse evidence-based findings and innovation to create a comprehensive center of healing, this location houses 24-beds, and was built for greater visibility to better serve and support patients throughout the day.
