Mental Health Facilities in Oklahoma City
Located within each of the service areas in Oklahoma is a publicly supported Community Mental Health Centers (CMHC). There are fifteen CMHCs, five of which are state-operated facilities and the other ten are contracted non-profit providers. They cover all 77 counties in Oklahoma. Most centers have satellite offices or other specialized programs within their service areas.
The CMHCs provide screening, assessment and referral services, emergency services, therapy, psychiatric rehabilitation, case management, and other community support services designed to assist adult mental health consumers in living as independently as possible and to provide therapeutic services for children who are demonstrating symptoms of emotional disturbance. All CMHCs provide services to both adults and children.
Adult Criteria for Mental Health Services:
We serve adult Oklahomans in need of mental health and substance abuse treatment who are 200% of poverty or below and have no other means of pay. However, because of limited resources, we also have illness severity criteria that must be met for adults to receive services.
