The organization is committed to continually improve the quality of care and services provided to consumers. West Alabama Mental Health will collaborate with stakeholders to ensure mutual accountability for resource stewardship and system effectiveness.

VISION STATEMENT

West Alabama Mental Health’s vision is to provide responsive and accessible services in Choctaw, Greene, Hale, Marengo, and Sumter Counties. Vital to our vision is a commitment to recovery-oriented, consumer-centered care. To ensure this vision of care, WAMH will find ways to flex services and utilize community resources to promote consumer access to necessary and beneficial services.
