What People Are Saying

  • “We have been working with Mental Health Cooperative since they opened here in Bradley County in 2015. We were excited to have another mental health partner in this community that would fill a much needed gap in services. Since their opening, we have referred many clients to them and have been pleased with the service this clients receive. We look forward to working with Mental Health Cooperative in the future.”

    Justin Forgette, LPC/MHSP
    Parkridge Valley Outpatient Services of Cleveland

  • “Mental illness is unbearable for those afflicted and for their families, but it helps to have individuals like you serving the community and making the loved ones of those affected feel better given the unpleasant realities of mental health crises. I just wanted to reach out and thank you for a job well done and express my appreciation for the service you provide. ”


  • “MHC saved my life. We couldn’t find services that worked for our teenage daughter until we came here. Kim Batson helped us create a plan for our family and made the process easier than we had ever experienced in the past.”


  • “MHC and I work together as a team in my school. My MHC therapist is wonderful. She is professional, dependable, encouraging, and works as a team player to help our children be successful. ”

  • “Your partnership has been a powerful addition to my practice. I’ve seen remarkable improvement with many of my patients, several I had initially planned to start on medication but later ended up not needing it because of your work. Your model works well and I think every pediatrics office in the country needs this kind of support.”

    Clifford Seyler, M.D.
    Tullahoma Pediatrics, Manchester Pediatrics, Royal Pediatrics

  • “I just wanted to write and say how wonderful our partnership with MHC has been. Erin has been great, we've seen tremendous improvement with our patients, and they actually go to their counseling appointments now since it doesn't "feel" like they are going to a therapy center. It has been a real breath of fresh air. Anyways, just wanted to take a second to tell you we appreciate everything you all do.”

    Hunter Butler, M.D.
    Springfield Children’s Clinic

  • “The services you provide and the way you provide them is being proven in the growth. I know it is stressful at times to manage the growing organization, but MHC truly services the forgotten edges of our society. The dignity and humanity with which you do it has value that cannot not be assessed or ever truly appreciated. The individuals and families you impact, however, will never forget and will always pay forward their gratitude to others.”
