About Us

Central Alabama Wellness Center

Central Alabama Wellness is located in the heart of central Alabama.  We are a non-profit organization dedicated to serving communities of Chilton and Shelby Counties.  We provide a wide array of services to all ages.

The Mental Health Board of Chilton and Shelby Counties, Inc. was founded in 1972 as a result of Act 310, which established regional metal health boards across Alabama.  In 1972 there was one location.   We have offices in Calera, Clanton and Pelham and provide a wide range of services in the community and local schools.  The first 48 years, the organization was commonly known as Chilton Shelby Mental Health Center.  January 2020 brought a new look and name, Central Alabama Wellness.   By definition, wellness is an active process of becoming aware and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life.     Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a process of change and growth.  Maintaining wellness is the cornerstone to achieving the best possible quality of life.  It is our goal at Central Alabama Wellness to help others live life well.

Central Alabama Wellness is certified to provide services through the Alabama Department of Mental Health.  We accept third-party payments and some services are available on a reduced fee for those without insurance.
