Jackson House Expands Mental Health Services in Ventura County

SANTA PAULA, CA – Jackson House is opening its fifth residential mental health treatment center in Santa Paula to help Ventura County residents who are in crisis. One in five adults in the U.S. experience mental illness each year, however, more than half of the counties across the country still do not have a practicing psychiatrist according to the National Alliance on Mental. Jackson House is working to make mental healthcare more accessible, so individuals can learn the tools they need to live happier, healthier lives.

“The stigma around receiving mental health treatment is changing for the better, unfortunately, it can still be difficult for many people to access care. We want people to be able to receive high-quality care close to home, which is why we are so excited to be opening a new location in Santa Paula,” said Dr. Bruce Figuered, President of Jackson House. “Now, community members will have a safe place to address their immediate needs, while discovering how to manage their illness moving forward.”

Jackson House opened its Santa Paula facility on February 1, 2022. Jackson House Santa Paula is 5,000 square feet and has 16 beds. Jackson House is a middle ground for patients who need the support of a residential treatment program but do not need the level of care provided in a locked, inpatient hospital.

The Jackson House program is customized for each client’s individual needs. However, treatment typically includes daily therapy sessions, life skills classes, peer support groups and individual counseling.

“We saw a huge gap in mental health services across our state,” said Dr. Figuered. “Sadly, many people with mental illness are still ending up in the emergency room for treatment. While hospitals can help stabilize patients, they are not designed to provide patients with the tools they need to manage their long-term health. Jackson House is different. We help our clients feel better during treatment but also make sure they know how to maintain the quality of life they desire moving forward.”

Jackson House is working to make high-quality mental healthcare more accessible. Jackson House Santa Paula currently accepts insurance on an out-of-network basis and anticipates being in-network with several providers over the next few months.

Individuals who are experiencing a personal crisis, considering taking their own life, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder or psychosis will be able to find support and receive treatment at Jackson House. They can call their health insurance company or Jackson House directly to learn more about treatment options.


Jackson House was built to fill a critical gap in the healthcare system. The company recognized there were outpatient treatment options and locked, inpatient facilities but nothing in the middle. Jackson House allows people to receive around-the-clock mental health treatment voluntarily, on their own terms. The program is built around evidence-based care and customized to meet each client’s unique needs. Jackson House helps clients manage the symptoms of their mental illness, provides tools for recovery and teaches the life skills necessary to thrive. Learn more by visiting
