Helen Farabee Centers specialize in providing access to community-based treatment and support services for persons with severe, persistent forms of mental illness, substance abuse and persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Serving North Texas since 1969, the Center operates more than 20 program sites within our 16,655 square mile catchment area. Each month our Centers provide behavioral health and/or intellectual or developmental disability services for more than 10,000 people and, in many cases, their families.

While our Centers serve a large population over a very broad geographic area, we are dedicated to knowing and meeting the needs of the people who come to us for help as well as the communities we are here to serve.

Helen Farabee Centers is proud to announce that we will be partnering with NAMI Wichita Falls to host an exhibition at the upcoming Art and Soul Festival this summer.

"Piece of Mind" is and exhibition that will draw public awareness to mental health and the negative impacts that stigma has on someone living with mental illness. It is our intent to challenge visitors to question their own views on mental health and to encourage love and acceptance for all without judgement or discrimination. 

Our exhibition will feature artwork created by local artists who have interpreted personal stories from people in our community who are either caring for someone or are someone living with mental illness, substance use disorder, or an intellectual or developmental disability.

Help us to stop the stigma surrounding mental health and become better educated on mental illnesses through the beauty of artwork. 

The Art and Soul Festival will be hosted by Downtown Wichita Falls on Saturday, June 24th from 3pm-10pm. Admission is only $5 per person and children 12 and under are free.
