Vision for a healthier community

Ozark Center's vision is that those experiencing mental illness, addiction, or the pain of abuse will develop the skills essential to a life with dignity and purpose. Ozark Center works toward this goal by providing quality mental health services to children, adults, and families in need of care. The organization first identifies specific mental health concerns and needs and then addresses these needs in the most efficient way possible. In recent years, Ozark Center has adjusted its services, added programs, and expanded its facilities to meet community needs.
