Your Path to Improving Your Mental Health

West Alabama Mental Health Center is a regional mental health center located in the Blackbelt area of West Alabama serving Choctaw, Greene, Hale, Marengo, and Sumter counties. WAMHC is a comprehensive community mental health center providing services to people with mental illness, intellectual disabilities, substance abuse and children with serious emotional disorders. Through our prevention program we help at-risk and other students stay off drugs and in school. We also work with many community agencies to bridge the gap between services.

If you are seeking services call our Access-to-Care at 1-800-239-2901.
