MENTAL HEALTH & WELLNESS CAMPUS – A VISION
Beautiful Minds Wellness is moving forward with plans to build a vibrant mental health & wellness campus that offers comprehensive integrated mental health, medical, wellness services and education with the goal of alleviating the suffering of those with mental illness who have run out of options yet desire healing. Beautiful Minds Wellness’ mission is to increase access to comprehensive and wholistic mental health care which will be facilitated through the building of the Beautiful Minds Wellness Mental Health & Wellness Campus. Those struggling with mental illness deserve a range of whole-person services that will give them options beyond just meds to enable them to thrive regardless of their diagnoses. There is a large demand for these types of services and a tremendous shortage of providers and facilities that offer integrated holistic mental health care.
Imagine a comprehensive treatment plan that respects each individuals human dignity, facilitates family therapy and provides a wide-ranging menu of options besides the usual psychiatric medications. The campus will include the Beautiful Minds Wellness Center offering affordable community mental health workshops, seminars, walking groups, health coaching and more. The non-profit will continue its work to sponsor those with financial difficulties to attend integrated intensive programs. One of the anchor tenants and supporters of Beautiful Minds Wellness will be Beautiful Minds Medical, a psychiatric practice providing a lifestyle focused intensive outpatient program which has had tremendous outcomes. Excellent and compassionate psychiatric care and therapy that encourage full patient participation in decision making about treatment plans are the norm there.
One goal of the wellness campus is to provide practical hands-on opportunities for people to not only learn about what leads to healing, but to experience it in a supportive environment. Plans include a cafe offering brain healthy foods, a gym providing exercise, massage and hydrotherapy, walking paths and a community garden. Imagine medical, behavioral health, and other businesses with a shared lifestyle vision, working synergistically to change the paradigm around the treatment of mental illness by surrounding individuals with love, compassion and providing a whole-person approach. Our goal is to make this picture an everyday occurrence.
Discussions are happening right now with developers to explore affordable housing options and residential units for those desiring a residential treatment program option. The interest is high, the need for whole-person mental health services is climbing, and the community is eager to see this plan come to fruition.

Beautiful Minds Wellness’ ambitious goals for programs and services will require facilities with specific capabilities and a reasonably central location.
Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital is generously donating 3-5 acres of land for the development of the Beautiful Minds Mental Health and Wellness Campus. A site this size will support at least 50,000 square feet of building space. This location will serve the greater Sacramento and Sierra foothills regions in the state of California.
One of the strategies for ensuring the sustainability of Beautiful Minds Wellness (BMW), a non-profit organization, is to develop a campus with space for lease to compatible health care services. The market rent from these other health care services will provide revenue to BMW, supporting the on-going costs of facilities and expanded whole-person mental health services.
