Support Groups 2020 – Karla Smith Behavioral Health


The health, safety and well-being of our families, staff and communities is always our top priority. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Karla Smith Behavioral Health has implemented the following precautionary measures to ensure safe delivery of mental health services.

These decisions are not made lightly, but they are necessary precautions we must take now to protect the health of our communities.  As mental health care professionals, we feel we have a responsibility to demonstrate best practices and lead the way as we navigate through these times.  
This is a rapidly evolving situation, and we are committed to keeping our communities, families and staff safe and informed. We will be updating the information on our Facebook and website frequently and as necessary.  




All Public Peer-facilitated Mental Health Support Groups and Suicide Grief Support Groups held on Thursday nights at KSBH and Clayton Behavioral are suspended until further notice.  Please contact Emily Smith at 618-624-5771 ext. 101 should your family need any support during this time.  Karla Smith Behavioral Health will remain available to all families during this time.



Thank you to everyone for your understanding and patience during this time. We remain committed to serving our communities with accessible mental health services and will be making frequent updates.  Please check our Facebook and website for future announcements.
