Hempfield is the leading provider of evidence-based behavioral health prevention and treatment services in central Pennsylvania. Our mission is to take proven programs for the prevention or treatment of child abuse, delinquency, youth violence, school failure and mental illness, and intellectual and developmental disabilities and implement them under actual community-based conditions.
Hempfield is committed to helping people change in ways that can lead to greater personal happiness, competence and satisfaction. We apply effective, research-supported treatments in natural settings. We partner with our clients, their families and communities to analyze problems, design and implement change strategies and develop mechanisms that encourage continued growth after our involvement.
Hempfield Behavioral Health began in 1988, growing out of consulting and training activities with the publicly funded MH/MR and Child Welfare systems.
