welcome to the mississippi department of mental health

The Mississippi Department of Mental Health is committed to making available a comprehensive system of services and supports so all Mississippians have access to the least restrictive and most appropriate level of services and supports that will meet their needs. Our system is person-centered and is built on the strengths of individuals and families while meeting their needs for special services. Services should be provided on a continuum of where the person is at that time and what their needs are.

Mississippi’s mental health service delivery system is comprised of three major components: 1) state-operated programs and community service programs, 2) regional community mental health centers, 3) and other nonprofit/profit service agencies/organizations.

Inspiring hope, helping individuals on their road to recovery, and improving resiliency are key factors to the success of the people we serve.

Are you experiencing a crisis situation?

A Mobile Crisis Response Team can help people who are experiencing a situation where the person’s behavioral health needs exceed the person’s resources to effectively handle the circumstances. Teams consist of mental health professionals who can provide support to people experiencing a mental health, alcohol and drug, or intellectual and development disabilities crisis. Teams are available to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Teams provide community-based crisis services in the location where the person is experiencing the crisis. Mobile Crisis Response Teams are available in all 82 counties in Mississippi. Services are funded by the Department of Mental Health and provided by the 14 Community Mental Health Centers.
