Sixty-five years later and Pawnee Mental Health continues to serve the Riley County area.

Robbin Cole, Pawnee Mental Health Executive Director, says this year is full of events, from the K-State 5K Homecoming event to celebrating 65 years of service.

“Pawnee Mental Health started serving Riley County and the city of Manhattan as the Riley County Mental Health Center on November 19th of 1956.”

Cole says this year they will not only hold their typical events, but will add several anniversary events, beginning with a celebration in Junction City on October 19. She says the celebration continues in Concordia on October 28, and finally finishes in Manhattan on November 4 with a “Driving the Dream” theme, dinner, and a live auction. Cole adds that a silent auction will also take place from October 19 to November 2.
