Adult Services

Addressing the mental health needs of adults is fundamental to the future of Mississippi. An estimated 165,000 Mississippians need mental health services. 1 in 4 people will need mental health services at some point in their life. DMH is continuing to work towards a recovery-oriented system of care which focuses on a network of services and supports. This includes state-run behavioral health programs, community-based care, peer-run services, involvement from family, and other supports that incorporate the values and principles associated with recovery. We want all Mississippians to restore, rebuild and reclaim control of their lives by increasing their resilience and focusing on their strengths.

Behavioral Health Programs

DMH administers and operates five behavioral health programs. The programs provide inpatient services for adults with serious mental illness and substance abuse.

Crisis Stabilization Units

The role of the Crisis Stabilization Units in the regional system is to provide stabilization and treatment services to persons who are in psychiatric crisis. It is believed that many of these individuals with mental illness can be treated in the center and returned to the community without an inpatient admission to the state psychiatric hospital. The more quickly a person receives treatment, as opposed to being “held” without treatment, the less likely his or her condition will worsen. An individual can receive involuntary and voluntary treatment at a Crisis Stabilization Unit. In addition, after treatment an individual will already be connected with their local Community Mental Health Center.
