History

Coleman Professional Services, the parent company of Coleman Behavioral Health, began its work in 1978 as Kevin Coleman Center.

The Kevin Coleman Center was established through consolidation of Portage Counseling Services and Community House and named in memory of a local priest-psychologist Father Kevin Coleman. The organization’s initial mission was to provide counseling services for individuals and families residing in Portage County who were experiencing mental health issues.

Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Coleman Professional Services in Portage County expanded to provide psychiatry and case management to children and adults. The organization received its first national accreditation in 1980 from CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and has been awarded renewed accreditation every three years since then. The most recent accreditation was January 2010 with Coleman Professional Services receiving the highest level of accreditation.

The services provided to the community have been under the Coleman Behavioral Health name since 2006.
