Mental Health Services
The mission of the Frederick County Mental Health Services is to provide the people of Frederick County a means to achieve mental health by relief from the symptoms and causes of mental illness and by promoting mentally and emotionally healthy choices of thought, feeling, and action.
Our team of Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and Licensed Professional Counselors do this through an integrated community-based system of care that is responsive to consumers’ needs and choices. We respect and promote the dignity, rights, and full participation of individuals and their families.
