History

A non-profit organization, Western Mental Health Center focuses its efforts on providing comprehensive mental health services to meet varied community needs. Established in 1958, Western Mental Health Center began operating as a result of the Minnesota Community Mental Health Act. We have offices in the counties of Lincoln, Lyon, Murray, Redwood and Yellow Medicine.

At Western Mental Health Center, our mission is to promote and advance mental health, to treat persons with mental health or related needs, and to provide collaborative and educational services to the community. We work in collaboration with county, school, court, corrections, health care and many other professionals throughout the community.
Western Mental Health Center provides compassionate, patient-focused care. Our highly-skilled and experienced therapists and clinicians work with you to build a trusting connection. We understand each person is unique, and our focus is to help restore the whole – mental, emotional, spiritual – you.

The psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists at Western Mental Health Center offer a variety of treatment options, ranging from medications to group sessions to intensive individual therapy. Whatever the need, we can help identify the issues and offer guidance on how to manage them.
