Helen Farabee Centers

Helen Farabee Centers provide support, resources and opportunities to enable people with behavioral health issues and intellectual and developmental disabilities to live satisfying, responsible, and productive lives to the fullest of their abilities.

Helen Farabee Centers offers the following services specially designed to meet the needs of persons with major mental illness:

  • Psychiatric Evaluation
  • Supportive Counseling
  • Psychoactive Medication & Monitoring
  • Supported Employment
  • Rehabilitative Skills Training
  • Supported Housing
  • Community-based Crisis Intervention

All services are based on the individual's needs and choices and are structured to help the person manage their illness, encouraging independent and productive lives.

Services are available to anyone living within the service area who meets eligibility guidelines for receiving mental health services through the Department of State Health Services system. Services are available without discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex or disability.

The Center accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and most forms of private health insurance. For persons who are not eligible for health coverage, fees will be assessed on the basis of proof of the individual's (or, in some cases, the family's) complete income, with no one being denied services due to an inability to pay.
