About Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health is one of the nation’s largest nonprofit organizations providing services, insight and leadership in the evolving field of behavioral healthcare.

Founded in 1912 by special education pioneer Helena Devereux, Devereux operates a comprehensive network of clinical, therapeutic, educational and employment programs and services that positively impact the lives of tens of thousands of children, adults – and their families – every year. The organization’s unique approach combines evidence-based interventions with compassionate family engagement.

With nearly 6,500 employees working in programs across the U.S., Devereux is a trusted partner for families, schools and communities, serving many of our country’s most vulnerable populations in the areas of autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities, specialty mental health, education and foster care.

Our programs are offered in hospital and residential, community and school-based settings. They include:

  • Comprehensive assessment, diagnostics and measurement to support data-driven care
  • Evidence-based treatment and special education
  • Transition and independent life services
  • Family education and professional training
  • Research and innovation to advance the field
  • Advocacy, public awareness and prevention

For more than a century, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health has been guided by a simple and enduring mission: To change lives by unlocking and nurturing human potential for people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.
