Our Programs

The Spartanburg Area Mental Health Center (SAMHC) offers a wide range of Community Mental Health programs that serve the mentally ill, provide geriatric mental health case management, and offer mental health counseling to children and families. The goal: to get consistent, coordinated care to the individuals who need it and their families.

Community mental health programs are important for every community. These programs offer all citizens access to essential mental health treatment and resources. This affords access to medication, counseling and emergency mental health services for individuals who may not have health care or the financial means to pay for appointments and medication.

Many of these programs are collaborations between SAMHC and state or city agencies, others are partnerships with health and behavioral health agencies.


Intensive Community Treatment

Intensive Community Treatment (ICT) is an array of mental health services for individuals with significant mental illness who need intensive levels of support and service in their natural environment to permit or enhance functioning in the community.

Individual Placement and Support

Individual Placement and Support (IPS) is a model of supported employment for people with serious mental illness. IPS supported employment helps people living with behavioral health conditions work at regular jobs of their choosing.

Towards Local Care

TLC programs provide residential and rehabilitative services to help patients integrate into their communities, while properly addressing clinical needs and providing stabilization services that assist individuals in distress without hospitalization.


Community Housing

The Housing and Homeless Programs of SAMHC provide assistance and funding through vendor contracts to organizations, primarily non-profit organizations, that provide housing and services to persons with severe and persistent mental illnesses.

Intensive Family Services

Intensive Family Services are home-based mental health services that are designed to meet each child and family’s unique needs through crisis management, intensive case management, counseling, family therapy, and skills training.

Crisis Response and Intervention

SAMHC Community Crisis Response & Intervention (CCRI) program announced its partnership with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s. The CCRI mental health counselors will provide on-site emergency psychiatric screening and assessment 24/7 to our community.


Eubanks Center

Eubanks Peer Support Living Room is designed to be a safe space where individuals can find support and resources in order to prevent a behavioral health crisis. It is also staffed with peer-support specialists who have faced their own behavioral health challenges.

Care Coordination

Care coordination is the process of helping a person with a mental illness to access a range of different services. The main goal of care coordination is to meet patients' needs and preferences in the delivery of high-quality, high-value health care.
