Mental Health

Helping Families. Supporting Communities. Empowering Individuals.

Every individual who suffers from a mental condition has different circumstances that will require a unique set of services/level of care to address their specific needs.

The Division of Mental Health (DMH) provides a wide variety of services at all levels for adults and children throughout the state. These services are offered through hundreds of DMH partners called "Providers" (i.e. mental health clinics, agencies and hospitals). Providers serve as 'front doors' to enter the publicly funded system of mental health care.
