The Campaign for
Northern Light Acadia Hospital

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, more than one in four Mainers are living with a behavioral health challenge. Sadly, nearly half of those affected do not receive any form of treatment. Timely care for behavioral health conditions can improve, and even save, lives. Acadia For All is the campaign to expand behavioral health services at Northern Light Acadia Hospital for Mainers of all ages, in all areas of the state.

Acadia For All supports:

  • More flexibility in responding to the needs of Mainers affected by behavioral health conditions
  • Improved access for patients who must wait in emergency rooms for days or weeks for a bed at a psychiatric hospital
  • Expanded services tailored to the unique needs of children and adolescents
  • Healthy brain aging research and treatment for Maine’s older residents
  • A focus on retaining and attracting skilled clinicians and staff

The Acadia for All Campaign

The Acadia For All Campaign is the pathway to increased access to behavioral healthcare in Maine. Whether it’s a friend, family member, or co-worker, chances are someone you know is living with a behavioral health condition. Sadly, only about 55 percent of affected Mainers receive any form of treatment in part due to overburdened facilities. A critical lack of inpatient behavioral health beds across Maine means treatment remains elusive for many while others, including children, languish in emergency rooms for days, weeks, and sometimes months waiting for a bed at Northern Light Acadia Hospital or another facility. An investment in Acadia For All will help ensure that more people affected by behavioral health issues receive timely, effective care. Join us in making a lifechanging difference to thousands of Mainers.
