Our Mission of Service

Most people experience a mental health concern sometime during their life. Whether you have depression or another mood disorder, anxiety, a psychotic disorder, or a co-occurring substance abuse disorder, it should be addressed promptly and completely by mental health experts you can trust. MBPA can provide you peace of mind and the wellness you deserve in a comfortable and safe outpatient environment. In fact, MBPA began with your concerns and care in mind. In 2001, a local group of psychiatrists had a vision of an agency that would provide comprehensive, psychiatric services - focused on clinical excellence, teamwork, and commitment from physicians and staff to ensure the well being of all our patients. Since 2012, this vision and tradition of clinical excellence continues under the McLaren Bay Region network. MBPA offers the following outpatient programs: Psychiatric Services, Therapy, and Case Management.
