The Mississippi Department of Mental Health (DMH) provides and/or financially supports a network of services for people with mental illness, intellectual/developmental disabilities, substance abuse problems, and Alzheimer’s disease and/or other dementia. It is our goal to improve the lives of Mississippians by supporting a better tomorrow…today.
The mental health service delivery system is comprised of three major components:
- state-operated programs and community service programs,
- regional community mental health centers,
- and other nonprofit/profit service agencies/organizations.
Both residential and community-based services and supports are available through DMH. The type of services provided depends on the location and provider.
