Welcome to Southwestern Human Services

Enhancing the quality of each person’s life is our mission. Located in Bethel Park in Pittsburgh’s South Hills and Lawrenceville, Southwestern Human Services offers a variety of programs for children, adolescents, adults, and families in the southwestern Pennsylvania area.

In addition to Intensive Behavioral Health Services (IBHS) we offer Outpatient Psychiatric Services to children, adolescents, adults, and families including outpatient therapy, medication management, and social skills groups.

We have provided over 20 years of service to the southwestern Pennsylvania area. From our beginnings in 1997, Southwestern Human Services has provided services to over 12,000 clients including children, adolescents, and families in the Allegheny County and surrounding area.

We are pleased to announce that we have a satellite office in Lawrenceville that provides outpatient psychiatric and psychological services. Located at 5328 Butler Street in the 10th Ward of the City of Pittsburgh, our satellite office offers services to Allegheny County and surrounding county residents.

Southwestern Human Services is a Psychiatric Outpatient Clinic licensed by The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services/Office of Mental Health & Substance Abuse.
