In 1966, a group of concerned citizens formed the Nineteenth Regional Mental Health / Mental Retardation Board in response to President Kennedy’s initiative to drastically alter the delivery of behavioral health services. As a result, federal funds were issued to establish the Appalachian Comprehensive Care Center to provide behavioral health services in Boyd, Carter, Greenup, and Lawrence counties. Elliott County was added later when statewide districts were formed by the state / federal governments.

In 1972, the name was changed to Lansdowne Comprehensive Care Center, and in 1982 Lansdowne merged with the Cave Run Comprehensive Care Center to become Pathways, Inc. (hereinafter, Pathways). Five additional counties – Bath, Menifee, Montgomery, Morgan, and Rowan – were added to the area following the merger.

Pathways serves Bath, Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Greenup, Lawrence, Menifee, Montgomery, Morgan, and Rowan.

Pathways offers a huge variety of services which include: Community-Based Opportunities, Crisis/Emergency and Residential Services, Evidence Based Practice, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Support Services, Nursing and Medical Services, Outpatient Services, and Prevention Services.

Pathways have positions in a wide range of areas, you find the listing to all of their currently open positions here.
