Welcome to Clark Community Mental Health Center

Moving Forward, Improving Lives and Communities through
Compassionate Care

An update concerning COVID-19 from Brad Ridenour, Clark Center CEO:

April 14, 2020

Yes, we are still actively serving the needs of our community. We want to reassure that the Clark Center is available to help our community members during this pandemic crisis. In order to take seriously social distancing and to keep our valued clients and employees safe from potential spread of the Coronavirus illness, we are providing most services via telephone or video chat. Clark staff may provide equipment to make these tele-visits possible.

If you have need to visit one of our offices, you will find the entrance door locked. But, WE ARE STILL OPEN! To enter the building, ring the video doorbell. A Clark staff will ask you a few health related questions before you are allowed entrance. This entry procedure will help us to ensure proper social distancing in our lobbies and prevent possible spread of illness in our facilities.

Crisis response remains available to all community members 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Our crisis hot-line number is 1-800-801-4405.

As you attempt to socially distance, we encourage that you do not socially isolate. Though it might not be done with a face-to-face visit, the Clark Center will make a way to serve you in your time of need.



Our Vision: To reduce the stigma and promote awareness surrounding mental health within the communities we serve.
Promote wellness.
Provide individualized care with an integrated approach.


We are proud to announce that we have achieved CARF accreditation.
