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:

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 on-going 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 continue to offer telehealth visits in addition to socially distanced and masked face-to-face visits.
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 and will provide you with a mask if you do not have one.  This entry procedure will help us to ensure proper social distancing in our lobbies and prevent possible spread of illness in our facilities.

Many are struggling during this stressful time.   Do not wait to reach out for help.   We stand ready to help 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.
