About Us

Behavioral Health Center opened on January 2, 1996 as a result from the merger of William Donahue, LCSW & Associates and Central Maine Evaluations.  We have expanded staffing slowly to meet the needs of clients.  Currently staffing includes 6 Licensed Clinical Social Workers and 2 Licensed Professional Counselors.  The clinical staff is supported by 2 administrative staff to help schedule clients and manage quality clinical records.  Staff is supported by a Consulting Attorney and a CPA (Certified Public Accountant).  Behavioral Health Center includes all clinical, administrative, and consultants and in continually improving procedures, facilities and staff in meeting client needs.

Behavioral Health Center (BHC) is a private group of out-patient mental health practitioners.  Evaluation and treatment services are provided to individuals, families, courts, businesses, schools, individuals involved in civil/criminal proceedings, elderly and disabled people living in long-term care facilities.  Treatments focus on utilizing Evidence Based and Brief Therapy Models.  Evidence Based Treatments are treatment methods that have research supporting their effectiveness in helping clients improve their functioning, manage symptoms or enlarge upon their recovery process.

Behavioral Health Center is licensed by the State of Maine to provide Out-Patient Psychotherapy Services.  Most private practices in Maine are not licensed as clinics, although each provider/clinician should hold a valid Maine license to practice their profession as a Social Worker, Counselor, Psychiatrist, Psychologist or Nurse. The licensing process helps insure that the facility, staff, practices, clinical records, safety and financial policies meet acceptable standards set by the Department of Health and Human Services.  Agencies are licensed for 1 to 2 years and conditions can be attached for deficiencies found.  Behavioral Health Center was initially licensed for 2 years without any conditions or provisions, which is the best that is granted on an initial licensing survey. Consequently, our license has been  renewed for 2 years increments without deficiencies.
