On November 5, 1968, at a county election, the voters of Shelby County by a three-to-one margin passed the adoption of HB-708. Planning was begun and on February 2, 1970, the Mental Health Center opened for services. On September 28, 1970, the "708" Board established the Shelby County Rehabilitation Center.
By 1978, the Center had been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and the Mental Health Center and workshop was serving an average caseload of 250 people. The citizens of Shelby County were receiving evaluation, training, professional counseling, and other support services for the developmentally and emotionally challenged.
