Our History and Leadership
In the 1980’s, Dr. Loren Crabtree and Dr. Barbara Cram were running a unit at a private psychiatric hospital. They realized despite all the time, money, and resources they could ask for, it was clear that inpatient programming was an incomplete way to prepare a person to live a better life beyond the hospital. They, along with Paul Keisling, knew that they had to find a way to treat, support, and educate our patients over the long haul and in the community.
This became their dream and mission. This was the driving force that pushed them to create Project Transition.
