Our founding

Mental health services in the Lakes Region were few and far between in the 1960s. This issue that did not escape the attention of Dr. George “Pete” Harris, a Gilford pediatrician who recognized the need for mental health care among his patients and their families. With the vision and perseverance of Dr. Harris and other champions for mental health, the Lakes Region Mental Health Center opened its doors in 1966. Known today as Lakes Region Mental Health Center, we have seen tremendous growth in the number of patients and changes in the services and supports provided. Today, we are proud to provide mental health care to almost 4,000 people in the Lakes Region
