Kings view was founded in Reedley, California in 1951 by the Mennonites to address the need for treatment of mental health. In the 1960’s and early 1970’s, the scope of services was expanded to include drug and alcohol treatment through a number of community programs. In 1975, a day facility providing activity and work experience for developmentally disabled adults was established in Merced County. A drug and alcohol prevention and restoration program was created in Fresno in the 1980’s. In 1998 a TelePsychiatry program was launched to bring much needed psychiatric care to patients in more rural areas who may not have local access to such facilities. Currently Kings View offers the following service lines: Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol, MIS for Electronic Health Records, Intellectually Challenged Adult Services, Youth Empowerment Programs, TelePsychiatry and the Central Valley Suicide Prevention Hotline.
