About Us

Since it’s inception the Center has been providing a wide array of outpatient mental health care to adults, adolescents and children with personal and family needs and hurts. Last year clients came to the Center from fourteen counties in Southwest Oklahoma. The first year of operation we provided 592 counseling sessions. We have experienced steady growth through the years, expanding our staff in order to meet the demand for our services. We currently help 3,000 people each year, providing close to 7,000 counseling sessions. Historically around one half of our clients are helped at Reduced Fees or No Fee for service.

"I am grateful that I was able to come here, and for the first time in my life feel good mentally. I also want to thank my counselor - I feel that she has helped in saving my life. To the people who make it possible to come here, I can’t say thank you enough. With out them I know I would not have been able to get the help I needed. They too have helped in saving my life."
