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.

The Clinic is currently not accepting new clients for mental health services 


The clinic does not accept Medicare Advantage Plans.  
If you choose to change to a Medicare Advantage plan during Medicare Open Enrollment, please make sure the plan has providers convenient to you who can meet your physical and mental healthcare needs.

Medicaid renewal is NO LONGER automatic.
With the end of the COVID Public Health Emergency, Maryland will begin conducting Medicaid eligibility reviews again. Make sure your contact information is up to date so that you can receive your renewal notice for your health insurance.
