Southeast Louisiana Hospital in Mandeville closed their doors in 2012, removing access to mental and behavioral health to the area, and has remained unoccupied since that time. In 2016, after years of research and planning, the St Tammany Parish Government took the next step to turn this facility into Safe Haven, to provide Behavioral Health Services to the community of southeast Louisiana.

The facility strives to decriminalize the ideas of behavioral health and ease the misuse of correctional and emergency facilities to provide the services needed.
