Directory of Mental Health Services
Each year, DMHS serves over 6,500 people who, for some period of time, require intensive inpatient treatment in state psychiatric hospitals and over 270,000 people who are able to live more independently and use services in their own communities.
A major priority of DMHS - under the mandates of the Americans with Disabilities Act as interpreted by the Olmstead decision in 1999 - is to develop opportunities for community reintegration and tenure as required. DMHS is committed to helping the people it serves find the treatment and support services they need in the least restrictive setting possible. The Division works closely with other state agencies, consumers, family members, providers and mental health advocates whenever possible and always strives to promote opportunities for mental health consumers to live, work, socialize and learn as fully as possible in their own communities.
Another major initiative of DMHS is Wellness and Recovery, to promote both physical and mental health for the people it serves.
