Welcome to Valley HealthCare System!

Founded in 1969 by West Virginia University, Valley Counseling Services united with The Human Resources Association and incorporated as Valley Community Mental Health Services in 1972. Doing business as Valley HealthCare System, a nonprofit corporation, Valley has grown from a small counseling center located in the basement of a University building to a large multi-county, comprehensive behavioral health program.

Spurred by the federal government, funds became available through the passage of the Community Mental Health Center Act of 1963, introduced by President John F. Kennedy and Valley was able to establish itself as one of 13 federally-funded mental health centers in the state in the early 1970’s.

Over the years, Valley has continued to add to its array of services for people with disabilities, including services for individuals with developmental disabilities, mental health and chemical dependency issues.

We believe that the work that we do in Monongalia, Marion, Preston and Taylor Counties enhances the quality of life, not just for the persons served, but for everyone in those counties as well.
