About Us

Welcome to Texas Panhandle Centers (TPC)! We serve persons with behavioral health conditions (mental health illness and substance use), intellectual and developmental disabilities, and children with developmental delays from birth to three years of age. We provide quality services to over 10,000 individuals and their families each year in the top 21 counties of the Texas Panhandle with several service centers located throughout the area in Amarillo, Borger, Clarendon, Dumas, Hereford, Pampa and Perryton. At TPC, clients and staff decide together on individual plans of care that can include a wide array of available services such as assessment, case management, medication and a variety of other treatment and support services.

TPC is part of the Texas Community Center system and are governed by a local Board of Trustees representing the citizens of the upper 21 counties of the Texas Panhandle.
