With State and Federal budget cuts increasingly threatening mental health services, agencies like Tri-County rely more and more on community support to fund services.  TCMHS serves over 8,000 individuals each year with innovative programs and services addressing mental health, trauma, substance abuse, mental metardation/developmental disabilities, autism, and more.  Its philosophy of building toward recovery and sensitivity to traumatic experiences of consumers gives hope to individuals, families, and communities in Androscoggin, Northern Cumberland, Franklin and Oxford counties.
