About Us

We are proud that our Outpatient Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).  CARF ensures accredited organizations meet the highest possible standards for quality of services.

With about 53 staff, the Center serves its clients at its centrally located office in Moncks Corner.   We have psychiatrists, nurses, counselors, and others who provide direct clinical services, as well as administrative staff who support the clinical mission.

The priority populations that we serve are:  

       - adults with serious and persistent mental illness

       - adults with major, acute psychiatric concerns

       - children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbance


Berkeley Community Mental Health Center has adopted the following mission statement: The men and women of the Berkeley Community Mental Health Center, in partnership with clients, families and their diverse communities, will support the recovery citizens with mental illness.


The following priorities have been established: BCMHC will give priority to adults and children with serious mental illnesses and serious emotional disturbances and will fulfill its legislative mandates. We will work cooperatively with other agencies, both public and private, to assure continuity of services based on the needs of the individual.


Center values have been adopted as follows:

Respect for the Individual - We believe that the people we serve have the right to personal dignity, respect and the highest possible degree of independence. We are committed to services that promote the individual's quality of life, focus on the individual's strengths, foster independence, and honor the rights, wishes and needs of the individual.

Support for Local Care - We believe that people are best served within their home community. We are committed to the availability of a full and flexible range of coordinated services with the community as the primary focus of care, and services that appropriately meet the needs of the individual in the most normal environment possible. We are committed to programs which build upon the local support provided by family, friends, other agencies and the community, and which offer employment, leisure, learning, residential and psychiatric/rehabilitation services within this supportive framework.

Professionalism and Commitment to Quality - We believe that we should encourage and reward excellence. We will create a work environment which inspires and promotes innovation and creativity, supports education and research, and continually seeks more efficient and effective ways to provide clinical and administrative services. We are committed to a skilled and ethical work force, culturally competent and dedicated to the highest standards of courtesy, understanding and respect. We will be an agency worthy of the highest level of public trust.
