Trenton Psychiatric Hospital

Trenton Psychiatric Hospital (TPH) is a 450-bed psychiatric hospital serving a designated New Jersey population. We are a J.C.A.H.O. accredited health care facility, one of five psychiatric hospitals operated by DHS' Division of Mental Health Services.

Dorothea Lynde Dix, a pioneer in the care of the mentally ill, founded Trenton Psychiatric Hospital in the 1840’s. Honored in the nursing profession as an American scholar and educator, and a lifelong psychiatric crusader, Ms. Dix retired at the age of 80 to a private apartment set aside for her at the New Jersey State Hospital (TPH today) where she remained until her death in July of 1887.

TPH believes that nursing provides a holistic approach to patient care, from the initial assessment to the treatment of the human response, to actual or potential health problems. Working together with our direct care staff, we ensure the patient and the patient’s family competent, compassionate care as we collectively achieve individualized patient care goals.
