OUR MISSION: Centerstone's mission is to prevent and cure mental illness and addiction.

For over 50 years, Centerstone has responded to the behavioral healthcare needs of individuals and families, regardless of age or the severity of challenges. Our broad range of professional services is designed to ensure that sensitive, individualized care is available to everyone seeking help.

In 2008, Centerstone affiliated with Indiana-based Center for Behavioral Health and Quinco Behavioral Health Systems to create the largest provider of community-based behavioral health services in the nation. Dunn Mental Health Centers joined with Centerstone in September 2009, furthering expanding our coverage area in Indiana. With facilities throughout Middle Tennessee and Southern Indiana, over 75,000 children, adolescents, adults, seniors and their families receive treatment for mental health and substance abuse issues at Centerstone each year.

Through leading-edge research being conducted by the Centerstone Research Institute, we are working to improve outcomes for the clients in our care and for the delivery of behavioral healthcare across the world. Constantly motivated by our motto, "everyone matters," this powerful principle inspires us to offer a wide spectrum of services. The belief that everyone matters is not only a heartfelt message to the people we serve, but also a message of thanks to those who give their time, talents, and gifts to help us meet our vision. Hundreds of skilled professionals (over 1,900 employees), tireless volunteers, and generous donors make a critical difference in Centerstone's ability to fulfill its mission. Their dedicated efforts are the foundation of our success.

Centerstone is CARF accredited.
