Mark Twain Behavioral Health - Community


At MTBH our mission is to not only serve our clients but to be involved and active in our community, by promoting the restoration of health and wellness beyond our four walls.  The various services that we provide can be tailored to your specific need(s).


Services for Community

  •  The Community Behavioral Health Liaison's (CBHL) role in the community is to form better partnerships with crisis systems, law enforcement agencies, and the courts to best utilize existing resources and improve access to behavioral health services and supports.  
  •  The Youth Behavioral Health Liaison's (YBHL) role in the community is to coordinate services with local systems of care for children and youth with behavioral health needs.  Referral sources include, but are not limited to schools, the juvenile offices, children's division, law enforcement, courts, and hospitals.  The YBHL is proactively seeking, finding and interacting with individuals at high risk who may not already be involved in services or supports.

At MTBH, Consultation and Educational Services takes on many forms.  As requested, we will consult with employers, schools, and other agencies to offer mental health related services.   We are also active in our community through participation in a wide variety of events to educate the public about mental health and wellness as a whole.
