Tri-County Mental Health Services Is Now....

New name. Same programs, people, attention, and care. Tri-County Mental Health Services is now Beacon Mental Health! While they have a new look, they’re still offering the same nationally recognized 24/7 crisis care, substance use and suicide prevention programs to communities in Clay, Platte, and Ray Counties. As they continue support the Ray County Coalition, you will begin seeing emails coming from @beaconmh.org. Have no fear! These are still your trusted “Tri-County” Prevention Resource Center employees! Moving forward, you will also see the TCMHS logo being replaced with the one above. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at info@raycountycoalition.com.
