Helen Farabee Centers offers the following services specially designed to meet the needs of persons with behavioral health issues or major mental illness:
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 19-county 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.
