Lancaster County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities believes that every person with a mental illness has the potential to recover and and live a life that is full, rewarding, productive and valued.
Public mental health services are designed to serve adults with serious mental illness and children with mental illness and/or emotional disturbances who need supports to be successful in their community. The supports offered by either our agency and/or our contracted providers include psychiatric and social rehabilitation, case management, outpatient treatment, partial hospitalization, residential rehabilitation, supportive housing, vocational services, peer support, drop-in center services, advocacy and self help.
Our agency is committed to educating the community in order to end the stigma surrounding mental illness and eliminate the barriers to achieving full inclusion in society.
