About Us

Helen Farabee Centers specialize in providing access to community-based treatment and support services for persons with severe, persistent forms of mental illness, substance abuse and persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Serving North Texas since 1969, the Center operates more than 20 program sites within our 16,655 square mile catchment area. Each month our Centers provide behavioral health and/or intellectual or developmental disability services for more than 10,000 people and, in many cases, their families.

While our Centers serve a large population over a very broad geographic area, we are dedicated to knowing and meeting the needs of the people who come to us for help as well as the communities we are here to serve.

We are happy to serve you in-person at any of our 11 service locations throughout the HFC Catchment area. While face-to-face appointments are encouraged, we can also offer phone/video services if needed. To continue providing the safest care possible, anyone entering a HFC location will be asked some COVID-related screening questions. Masks are encouraged. Anyone feeling ill should remain home and give us a call!

Open Access Mental Health Intake appointments will be on a first-come, first-served basis by walking in to any center location to begin the process. Our intake line is 1-800-669-4166.
