Provide caring, effective services to help those with the greatest challenges recover from mental illness and associated chronic illnesses.
Places for People was founded in 1972 to serve patients who were discharged from the St. Louis State Psychiatric Hospital during the process of deinstitutionalization, or downsizing. In 2011, Places for People merged with Community Alternatives, which was founded in 1995 when Missouri moved to privatize outpatient mental health care. The new agency, which retains the name "Places for People," offers all the services previously available at each agency separately and is positioned for further growth and success in a future with economic and service-delivery challenges.
