Park Center was established in 1967 as the Mental Health Center. The organization grew from early efforts to address the mental health needs of northeast Indiana. It got its start as the Fort Wayne Child Guidance Clinic as early as 1947.
Today, Park Center is a private, nonprofit, Community Mental Health Center with a mission to restore lives. With this purpose leading our daily actions, we offer diverse child and adult mental health services to meet the healthcare needs of all people. We strive to innovate and provide a solid, professional, community resource in the field of mental health.
Park Center employs a staff of psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed mental health professionals, case workers, and residential specialists. The organization currently assists about 12,000 people annually.
Park Center is overseen by a 15-member board of directors, and adheres to standards set forth by The Joint Commission, a national healthcare accreditation organization.
