Kings View Behavioral Health Systems was founded in Reedley in 1951 by the Mennonite Central Committee to address the need for treatment of mental health. In the 1960s and early 1970s, the scope of services was expanded to include drug and alcohol treatment through a number of community programs. In 1975, a day facility providing activity and work experience for developmentally disabled adults was established in Merced County. A drug and alcohol prevention and restoration program was created in Fresno in the early 1980s. In 2003 a Tele-Psychiatry program was launched to bring much needed psychiatric care to patients in more rural areas who may not have local access to such facilities or lack transportation.
To provide community behavioral health and social services to those with limited resources, in the spirit of Christ's example of love, compassion, and respect for all persons.
