DMH Helpline & Resources
Find Services Near You
Good mental health and good physical health go hand-in-hand. Contacting our primary care physician comes naturally to us when we have a problem with our physical health like a cold, virus, or broken bone. However, reaching out for services to help with mental health problems, like depression or anxiety, may not come as easily. Call the DMH Helpline at 1-877-210-8513 for information about services and supports near you.
DMH has also developed Mental Health Mississippi to serve as a hub of information for all mental health resources available in our state. The site is available at www.mentalhealthms.com. We encourage you to browse the site to find services available in your area, including those for crisis situations.

Office of Consumer Support
The Office of Consumer Support (OCS) promotes the integration of the components of recovery and resiliency in practice, expansion of peer support services, and opportunities for meaningful participation in the public mental health system for individuals receiving services and their family members.
Additionally, OCS is responsible for providing assistance to individuals receiving services and their families to resolve grievances related to access to services and service provision, providing education regarding the rights of individuals receiving services, and responding to general questions concerning services for individuals with serious mental illness, intellectual/developmental disabilities, and substance use disorders.
OCS can provide information about services offered by DMH and DMH certified community service providers. Information is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling the DMH Helpline at 1-877-210-8513.
Through OCS, you or your family members can:
- Receive information about mental health, IDD, and substance abuse services available in your area.
- File a grievance, which will be responded to by the staff of OCS. You can file a grievance by calling the Helpline or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who Should Call?
DMH values information, both strengths and opportunities for improvement, provided by individuals who receive or have received services. Obtaining information on where to go for services is often the first step in the journey of recovery.
