Skyland Trail, a non-profit treatment facility for adults with mental illness, formally opens a renovated and expanded treatment facility on Nov. 12.

Officials of the non-profit facility will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the Dorothy C. Fuqua Center, 1961 North Druid Hills Road in Brookhaven, which contains a training and education center and a computer learning center.

Renovations and additions to the facility were financed through Skyland Trail’s capital campaign, launched in 2005, which raised $11.7 million for capital enhancements and programming, the non-profit facility said in a press release on Nov. 8.

“We are very excited with the expansion and state-of-the-art improvements to our facility,” Skyland Trail President/CEO Beth Finnerty said in the release. “These additions will allow us to better serve adults with mental illness who come to Skyland Trail for treatment. By providing them with the facilities to train them for successful careers in the community, we are giving our clients more hope for the future.”
