Shawnee Mental Health Center, Inc. is a private, non-profit comprehensive community mental health center that has been serving the residents of Adams, Lawrence and Scioto Counties in Ohio since 1973. Our first office was located in Portsmouth, Ohio adjacent to Portsmouth Receiving Hospital (the state psychiatric hospital for south east Ohio). In 2001 we moved from that location to 901 Washington Street in Portsmouth into the former Leet Lumber Company Building which we purchased and remodeled into offices.
Services in the other two counties were provided out of small, leased offices until the early 1980s when the Adams County Commissioners and the Lawrence County Commissioners received grants from the National Institute of Health to build two office buildings (one in West Union, Ohio in 1980, and one in Coal Grove, Ohio in 1981) to house our clinics. In 2003 we opened a second clinic in Coal Grove and we established a crisis stabilization unit in Portsmouth. We serve approximately 5,000 people each year. – less–ZoomInfo
