About Us

Our Mission

Waubonsie Mental Health Center strives to empower people to achieve their hopes, dreams, and quality of life goals by delivering quality, integrated, trauma-informed behavioral health care.

Waubonsie Mental Health Center is an accredited, non-profit Community Mental Health Center established in 1982 to serve the residents of Fremont, Montgomery, and Page Counties in Southwest Iowa. The Center was established to provide outpatient mental health services and to promote good mental health with available and affordable treatment. Waubonsie MHC can provide services within the nine county region of the Southwest Iowa Mental Health/Disability Services Region, which includes Monona, Harrison, Shelby, Pottawattamie, Cass, Mills, Montgomery, Fremont, and Page Counties. The Center offers a sliding fee scale with a discounted fee for individuals who fall above 150% of poverty according to the Federal Poverty guidelines.  We will assist individuals, if your income falls at or below 150% of the poverty level, with an application for Medicaid services.  Waubonsie Mental Health Center offices are located in the towns of Clarinda, Shenandoah, Sidney, and Red Oak in Iowa.

After Hours Care

Waubonsie Mental Health Center offers an after-hours answering service that can respond to a caller who has a mental health emergency.  This service is useful for an individual who is experiencing an emergency situation and needs to speak to a clinician on call.  The caller will be asked to give a name and telephone number, and a brief description of the emergency situation.  An answering service operator will contact the clinician on call and the clinician will contact the caller.  If there is need for immediate emergency assistance, the caller should call 911.
