It is the mission of the McKean County Department of Human Services to ensure that every person served by mental health, mental retardation, children and youth, drug and alcohol services have the opportunity for growth, recovery, and inclusion in their community, access to an array of services that meet their individual needs so they can enjoy a quality of life that includes family and friends.
