MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT/KSPR) - After Preferred Family Healthcare and Ascent Children’s Health Services in Mountain Home announced they will be closing, a new mental health provider has come to town.

Hometown Behavioral Health Services of Arkansas has been in Mountain Home for about three weeks.

As content partner KSPR reports, the school superintendent said Hometown Health hired therapists who students were already familiar with.

“The consistency of it all has been those therapists,” Superintendent Dr. Jake Long said. “And the therapists are invested in our schools and they have those relationship with the students. They have those relationships with the families. And that’s what was most important to us.”

Melanie Davis, the director of clinical operations said, “Hometown Behavioral Health is a family owned-and-operated business. We opened 11 years ago with our one and only clinic in Hoxie. Hoxie happens to be my hometown. And so when we found out there was an opportunity to expand our business here, we were very excited about being able to provide services to a community that’s in need.”
