Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to Labette Center! I believe the reason my staff members and I come to work at our center each day is because we are able to see our knowledge and skills make a difference in people's lives.

We're pleased to see the attitudes toward mental health services gradually change as people continue to realize and appreciate that maintaining good mental health is as important as taking care of one's physical health. We take pride in being a part of this progress.
