About Us / HistoryIn 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed the Community Mental Health Center Act requiring all counties to offer mental health services for those in need. The signing of this act marked the beginning of an entire county advocating for the those individuals suffering from mental illness, intellectual disabilities, and substance abuse difficulties to live a life full of dignity and opportunity. These populations deserve and are entitled to a life without ridicule and discrimination from employment to receiving healthcare related services. The signing of this act ensured every citizen would have access to mental health services and called all states to respond to this overwhelming need. Four County answered that call!
Four County Counseling Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 and designated by the state of Indiana as the Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) of four northern counties: Cass, Pulaski, Fulton, Miami Counties. We have been providing quality, community-based substance abuse and mental health services since the mid 1970’s and reach nearly 6000 clients annually. Although designated as the CMHC for four relatively rural Indiana counties, Four County Counseling Center services a great number of Hoosiers from other small, surrounding counties in an effort to increase accessibility of care to residents residing in under-served areas. We proudly employ nearly 230 associates across our four counties and 10 service locations. Community-based services include case management, home-based, school services, supported employment, outpatient individual and group clinic services, and medication management. These services are provided for both clients experiencing substance abuse and mental health related concerns with a particular emphasis on creating a collaborative, client-centered approach. Four County also offers additional residential services including supervised group living, transitional living, and an Acute Care Inpatient Unit. Four County is deeply committed to increasing access to care (and addressing service gaps in our communities), integrating physical and behavioral health well-being, and ensuring that services are rooted in quality and meaningful to our clients.
