About Adult and Child Center

Adult and Child Center is 501c3 not for profit agency focused on providing high quality mental health & child welfare services across Central Indiana. We support the unique and complex needs of people who experience serious mental illness or serious emotional disturbances and we do this through a highly trained and supported staff of over 500 people. We believe the symptoms of mental illness and the results of experiencing trauma are treatable with a little extra support from qualified mental health clinicians. We are here to support the mental health and child safety needs of Indianapolis and surrounding area. Our behavioral health staff are embedded in over 100 area schools and work side by side with teachers and school staff to identify and engage children who struggle with emotional needs early in their education. We have staff embedded in area homeless shelters to focus on working with adults, children, and families who experience homelessness. We help identify those who experience mental health or substance use concerns and connect them to person centered services.
