Mon Yough Community Services (MYCS) was founded on the belief that a community is only as strong as its members.

Since 1969, MYCS has served the men, women, and children of the McKeesport and Mon Valley area. We continue to provide critical services to those with mental health and developmental disabilities, substance use and behavioral health issues, and those in need of training and rehabilitation programs.

Starting out as mental health outpatient facility with three employees, MYCS has successfully grown and adapted to meet the growing needs of a changing community. Today, we have a staff of over 350 full-time employees and are positioned as one of the largest employers in McKeesport and surrounding communities.

MYCS actively participates in local and statewide initiatives, maintaining a constant emphasis on easy access and quality services for the people we serve. MYCS provides expert counseling and recovery-based programs in Behavioral Health (including Mental Health and Addiction Treatment & Intervention) and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

Mon Yough Community Services employees interact and serve nearly 6,000 individuals a year who are struggling with a variety of issues ranging from mental illness, addiction and developmental challenges.

As a part of the UPMC Health System, MYCS provides a variety of community based services including mental and behavioral health treatment and case management services, developmental and intellectual disabilities living arrangements and vocational training, and substance use treatment and prevention. Our comprehensive service continuum ranges from outpatient therapy to residential services, vocational training and supported employment, to in-school prevention and treatment programs, to psychosocial rehabilitation. We work with people where they are, geographically and emotionally.
