Twitchell House is a 15-bed residential treatment program for adults suffering from severe and persistent mental illness, whose symptoms interfere with their daily functioning to the point that they require 24 hours a day staffed care. Twitchell House is a certified residence by the Division of Behavioral Health. It is licensed annually by the State of NH, Dept. of Health and Human Services Office of Operations Support. The program provides the necessary residential, psychiatric and rehabilitative services aimed at empowerment and promotion of the person's active and positive participation in the broader community, for those people who would otherwise be institutionalized, incarcerated, homeless and indigent and display a deteriorating clinical course and a poor quality of life. Twitchell house staff is trained to provide developmentally appropriate services to aging people who typically have co-morbid medical problems, but the program is not limited to aging individuals.
