In 1971, PSA Behavioral Health Agency, then known as Presbyterian Services Agency, opened its doors to the elderly SMI (seriously mentally ill) population of South Phoenix. Forty-six years later, there is staff of 200+ (a quarter of which have lived experience) at 20+ locations serving nearly 3,000 youth, adults and families annually with a variety of services in seven counties throughout Arizona.
Areas of service include Housing, Outpatient, Peer & Family Recovery, and Art Awakenings. The latter was created in 2000 by CEO Sara Marriott and quickly evolved into a statewide, nationally recognized program.
