More Than A Name Change.
We Are Changing More Lives.


We’ve expanded our mission to transform more lives. As such the Karla Smith Foundation is now Karla Smith Behavioral Health. And we moved into our new center located in O’Fallon, Illinois, which is designed as a life-skill building and therapeutic facility that provides treatment, rehabilitation, and education that is specifically designed to assist struggling young adults with living an entirely independent, healthy lifestyle.

We offer out-patient clinical services and a new innovative treatment plan designed for today’s young adults called empowerU. In addition Karla Smith Behavioral Health will continue to offer a full spectrum of services for individuals and families for addiction, depression, bipolar and other behavioral health issues including a variety of Support Groups for families working through mental health issues and suicide grief.

    "As a future healthcare professional, I now understand what not to say to someone who has lost a loved one to suicide. I also never thought about the connotation of the word "commit". I now understand that someone doesn't commit suicide, rather they loose their life. Thank you so much for letting me come to your group and experience the feelings one may experience. You truly are a special group."

    "Your foundation gave me just what I needed to become more at peace with myself by giving me the opportunity to help others. I seriously can't thank you all enough for giving me the opportunity to work with you all. Thank you for everything."

    "I lost my son to suicide which was a huge shock and has left me totally broken. I have now made it my mission to help raise awareness about mental illness, suicide, bullying, and grief following suicide in my son's honor."
