About Us

Welcome to HealthWest.


At HealthWest, we do so much more than provide mental health care; we also provide services in the areas of developmental disabilities, substance use, physical health, and early intervention and prevention. Over time, we have come to know that caring for the “whole person” is the key to wellness and recovery.


HealthWest annually serves over 7,000 children and adults with developmental disabilities, mental illness, or substance use concerns.  Our services are community-based, meeting people in the community where they live, work and play. We have nearly 350 employees working in the areas of case management, recovery coaches, peer support, clinicians, therapists, crisis response, nurses, and more.
