It also provides a central location for those in areas of the country in need of the treatment we provide.

Understanding Your Needs


Depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, borderline personality disorder, and any range of trauma-related disorders, can all result in a frustrating disruption to your creative and professional drive, as well as present a major disruption to your family structure and close relationships. This is why BrightQuest Nashville is dedicated to helping families like yours find the solution you’re seeking. And sometimes, a new environment—a new community, a new structure—is what it may take for you or your loved one to finally start developing a sense of independence and better relationship skills.

We’ve been working in long-term psychiatric care for 40 years.

What this means is, we have worked with cases spanning four decades that prove that a therapeutic community is not only supportive and healing, but an opportunity for each individual to explore and identify with their true selves. Time after time we’ve heard, “if only we started here first.” But, when it comes to mental health, there are no mistakes. It’s always a process. And we understand this.
