Residential Psychiatric Services was conceived and developed in January of 2000. The focus was to deliver counseling services to those with mental illness residing in various types of residential care to counteract the recidivism rate of this population, while providing services to under-served rural areas. Acceptance of this service has been consistently positive.
It is with heart, determination, vision and stewardship that we persist in facing the challenges of providing Mental Health services. Since it’s creation, the leadership of RPS has developed the following tenets; they have served us and our clients well.
