ABOUT SIOUXLAND MENTAL HEALTH

Siouxland Mental Health Center serves all individuals within Woodbury County for the treatment of mental illness. While the main SMHC facility is located in an urban neighborhood of Sioux City, SMHC has partnered with several agencies in the community to establish alternative sites to increase accessibility to mental health care.  This includes having mental health therapists stationed within the Sioux City School District, Western Iowa Tech, and Juvenile Court Services.

Siouxland Mental Health Center stations a Care Coordinator in both hospitals, Mercy Medical and UnityPoint Health Systems, to assist patients with mental illness in receiving services within the community and to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and Emergency Room visits.

OUR HISTORY AND MISSION

Siouxland Mental Health Center (SMHC) is a nonprofit community mental health center that provides a comprehensive range of mental health services for the evaluation and treatment of people of all ages experiencing mental illness, individual or family emotional distress, and overwhelmingly stressful circumstances.

Siouxland Mental Health Center was founded in 1969 to address the unmet mental health needs in the community.  This includes populations most affected by access barriers such as low income uninsured, underinsured, and underserved.

While these populations remain a priority, SMHC continues to serve its mission to provide a difference in the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness and emotional distress.
