Permian Basin Community Centers is the local authority for Mental Health (MH) and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) services.  PBCC also provides Early Childhood Intervention services as well as Substance Use Disorder services.  Service fees are based on a sliding scale. Permian Basin Community Centers is a public entity that is governed by a local Board of Trustees.

The center was formed in 1969 by the city of Midland.  More counties were added as years went on.  Currently, PBCC has about 300 employees and a budget of over 22 million dollars.  Private insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid are accepted.  The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) contracts for mental health and chemical dependency services, the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) contracts for intellectual and developmental disabilities services, and the Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) contracts for Early Childhood Intervention services, allowing the implementation of a sliding fee scale, which lowers the cost to the consumer.
