In the year 1900, William J. Gould, a visionary and pioneer in social reform, conceived of a plan for emotional rehabilitation based on the principles of respectful discipline, wholesome work and unstinting kindness.

Thirteen years later, "Brother Will" and his wife, Agnes, purchased a farm in the Berkshire hills, giving birth to the nation's oldest therapeutic community.

Now, nearly a century later, Gould Farm's success continues to stem from the truth that a society is healthiest when its most vulnerable members are enabled to thrive. The Farm provides psycho-social rehabilitation in a nurturing and non-institutional environment for adults (ages 18 and over) coping with mental health conditions such as depression, bipolar and schizoaffective disorder and schizophrenia. Gould Farm is a diverse community of guests (our clients) and staff and their families.
