Our Mission

It is the mission of Advantage Behavioral Health Systems to provide person-centered community-based services and treatment to individuals and families experiencing mental illness, developmental disabilities, and addictions, by collaboratively using personal, community and organizational resources.


AUTISM AWARENESS  /  Autism affects people in a wide variety of ways. Because of this, it is actually known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). According to the National Institutes of Mental Health, "people with ASD have difficulty with social communication and interaction and have restricted interests and repetitive behaviors."
