About Kennebec Behavioral Health

Kennebec Behavioral Health’s mission is to promote the well-being of persons who experience mental illness, emotional difficulties or behavioral challenges.

The agency provides a continuum of high quality, innovative, community-based prevention, education, treatment and rehabilitation services. KBH provides one of the most comprehensive community mental health centers in Maine. With 21 sites in central Maine- and programs reaching from Rockland to Lewiston- KBH offers more than a dozen programs and services.

Improving lives with effective, innovative care

KBH continually monitors the quality of its services through evidence-based practices, internal measures and client surveys. Clients benefit from programs and interventions that have been carefully studied and proven effective. The agency recognizes that the ability to provide effective services rests upon the excellence of its staff, the availability of adequate financial resources and partnerships with other community agencies, state and local governments, and associations representing families and consumers.

Kennebec Valley Mental Health Center was created in 1960 as the community mental health center of central Maine. In 2007, the agency's name became Kennebec Behavioral Health to better reflect our expanded capabilities and geographic coverage.
