Center for Life Resources

408 Mulberry Street
Brownwood, TX 76801


In 1970, The Central Texas Mental Heath Mental Retardation Center (CTMHMR, now dba Center for Life Resources) was established after a long range planning by several community advocates, for the mentally challenged, i.e., Janie Clements, Reverand John Darden, and W. Lee Watson.

As an agency of the State, the Center has provided services in the counties of Brown, Eastland, Coleman, Comanche, San Saba, Mills, and McCulloch for individuals with mental illness, mental retardation, and substance abuse.

A 24-Hour Crisis Intervention Hotline is available to the residents of the region and works cooperatively with local law enforcement agencies and hospitals.

A nine-member board governs the Center. Eight members are appointed by the County Commissioners and one is appointed by the Brownwood City Council. These members represent the respective counties served.
