Our History

Iroquois Mental Health Center (IMHC) is a community mental health center founded in Iroquois County, a large rural county in east central Illinois.

IMHC first began providing outpatient mental health services as a branch of the Danville Mental Health Center in 1961. IMHC became an independent corporation in 1970 and was incorporated as a 501 c(3) nonprofit agency in 1971. In January 2005, the IMHC moved to its current location at 323 West Mulberry Street in Watseka, Illinois.

Since then, IMHC has expanded to eleven locations in four counties including the acquisition of the Resolve Center for substance use disorders in Manteno, Illinois.  We look forward to continued growth and better service to the residents of Illinois and surrounding states.
