The Helen Ross McNabb Center will start providing services at its new Blount County location on Aug. 1.
The newly constructed facility is located at 1704 E. Broadway Ave. in Maryville.
The center has provided mental health care and addiction services in Blount County for more than 19 years and most recently leased space in the New Midland Plaza in Maryville. The expansion allows space for psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, master level clinicians and bachelor trained therapists to provide mental health care in an onsite setting.
It will also provide a home base for therapist and case managers who work in the community’s schools, homes and juvenile court to further meet demonstrated needs.
The facility was designed by Johnson Architecture and constructed by Creative Structures. The project is funded through private donations and grants. Each facility currently owned and operated by the Helen Ross McNabb Center is debt free. The newest facility in Blount County will also be debt free due to the fundraising efforts of the center’s leadership and the Helen Ross McNabb Foundation. This will allow the Center to continue its tradition of directing its resources toward serving the community through its continuum of care.
Helen Ross McNabb Center is in its 63rd year of providing quality mental health care services in East Tennessee. In 1948, the center began as a child guidance clinic and has evolved through the years to become a multi-service regional agency. The center currently operates in 17 counties, providing mental health care, addiction/recovery treatment and social services for nearly 10,000 children, adults and families.
