The Retreat, a premiere, self-funded psychiatric setting operated by the nationally renowned Sheppard Pratt health system, announces third reunion to reconnect staff, former patients, family and friends. The first reunion was held in 2008, and has become a continual event due to an initial overwhelming success.

This year´s reunion will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012. The reunion provides the opportunity for former residents to reconnect, while reflecting on how their experiences have been shaped through The Retreat. Learning seminars and structured group activities provide continual educational opportunities, and allow alumni to showcase their growth since departing from The Retreat.

The seminars are followed by a guided tour of the Sheppard Pratt Grounds, which includes visits to the unit, hospital, and Sheppard Pratt Museum.

The days´ activities are concluded with a capstone dinner celebration. This year´s dinner will take place at Bluestone Grille in Timonium.

Sheppard Pratt has received overwhelming positivity in alumni responses regarding the reunion. One former resident mentioned, “as I shared with the group during my remarks, you have a team comprised of a winning combination of chemistry, compatibility, experiences and positive attitudes that is sure to be unmatched in your field. Thank you again for the delightful weekend, and please don´t hesitate to call on me if I can assist in the development of an alumni association or assist in spreading the word in any way.”

The event has become such a success that many former residents have expressed interest in developing an alumni association.

The Retreat´s reunion is another way that Sheppard Pratt continues to be an innovator in the psychiatric health services field. Continual reunions exemplify the strong effort The Retreat puts forth in developing pioneering treatment solutions and a state-of-the-art, welcoming environment.
