This event was an opportunity for the downtown community to welcome Acadia Healthcare Family Behavioral Health Services, as well provide an opportunity for everyone in the community to learn more about the mental health services offered at the clinic.
The clinic currently provides services for people from both Knox and Waldo Counties including psychiatric consultation and medication management, outpatient therapy, and child and adult case management. In addition, Acadia Healthcare has a successful partnership with both Rockland and Camden Rockport schools to provide therapy and day treatment services. A diverse group of 80-90 people from the community attended the event representing schools, medical providers, area businesses, career development, city and state government, and other mental health providers.
Gray remarked, “We are proud to represent Acadia Hospital and EMHS. For quite some time they have been quietly and successfully expanding community based access for people in need of mental health services. Our providers in the Rockland clinic are all exceptional, and have deep roots in Rockland and the surrounding area. We believe that we will only strengthen these relationships by continuing to be exceptional partners with others in the community and offering the highest quality services to those we serve. I think we are off to a good start.”
Pinny Beebe Center, Former Knox County commissioner and current Maine state representative for House District 93 representing Rockland and Owls Head added, “Acadia Healthcare has been a great addition to our community. They are collaborative partners and have such a commitment to quality services. Our community is better off for their presence and the services they are offering.”
