Arthur Center | Mexico, MO
East Central Missouri Behavioral Health Services, Inc. d/b/a Arthur Center is a community mental health center headquartered in Mexico, Missouri.


Arthur Center serves the behavioral health needs of approximately 3,800 people a year in Audrain, Callaway, Montgomery, Pike, Ralls and Monroe counties.   Arthur Center’s mission is centered in the concept of “partnership.” This partnership begins with the people we serve, their family, schools and the community. This partnership mission seeks to meet the people we serve recognizing the need to engage in a relationship of trust.


In addition, to the people we serve and their families, we seek to partner with other human service agencies in better meeting the behavioral health needs of our communities. Especially in rural areas, it is important to partner to avoid duplicating resources when resources are scarce and often more expensive because of geography and fewer numbers of participants available.

Our services are offered to schools, women’s groups, employment personnel or any other group seeking information.
