In brief, you should know the following about us. Our organization was founded in 1949 under another name when a group of community spirited individuals got together to help the families of individuals diagnosed with mental disorders to treatment to the only treatment facility available in those times, Moundbuilders located in Newark, Ohio. they help to raise funds to make possible the establishment of a satellite mental health treatment facility in the county formerly known as Moundbuilders and now known as The Behavioral Healthcare Partners of Central Ohio (in both counties). The history of this agency is rich. The agency became affiliated with NAMI several years ago and is now known officially as NAMI Knox Licking County Ohio; serving families with the benefits of NAMI's signature programs and activities in both counties.
