Northwest Missouri Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center (NMPRC) serves the western area of Missouri. NMPRC provides extended-stay psychiatric services for adults, 18 years old and over, suffering from chronic and persistent mental illness. Beyond the mandate to limit services within these categories, admission is non-discriminatory in relationship to age, gender, ethnicity, or diagnosis. Most admissions are through the court from Missouri Revised Statutes Section 552 commitments.
