About Our Organization

Siouxland Mental Health Center (SMHC) is a nonprofit community mental health center that provides a comprehensive range of mental health services for the evaluation and treatment of people of all ages experiencing mental illness, individual or family emotional distress, and overwhelmingly stressful circumstances. Siouxland Mental Health Center was founded in 1969 to address the unmet mental health needs in the community. This includes populations most affected by access barriers such as low income uninsured, underinsured, and underserved. While these populations remain a priority, SMHC continues to serve its mission to provide a difference in the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness and emotional distress.



Current Project: Telepsychiatry



Siouxland Mental Health Center will be using the funds raised from Siouxland Big Give to purchase telepsychiatry equipment. Telepsychiatry is the process of providing health care from a distance through technology often using a video conference. Video-based telepsychiatry helps meet patients’ needs for convenient, affordable and readily accessible mental health services. Telepsychiatry has been found especially effective with respect to the treatment of PTSD, depression and ADHD.
