Mental Health

Every individual who suffers from a mental condition has different circumstances that will require a unique set of services/level of care to address their specific needs.

The Division of Mental Health (DMH) provides a wide variety of services at all levels for adults and children throughout the state. These services are offered through hundreds of DMH partners called "Providers" (i.e. mental health clinics, agencies and hospitals). Providers serve as 'front doors' to enter the publicly funded system of mental health care.

Crisis Now

If you or someone you are concerned about are in a crisis state and at risk of harm to yourself, others, or property, or at risk of psychiatric hospitalization, you may exercise either of the following three options:

Call 911 (Police and fire department personnel are trained responders to situations involving mental health    issues.)
Go to the Emergency room at a local area hospital.
Contact the nearest provider of crisis psychiatric services.

Non-Emergency Mental Health Services

Use the DHS Office Locator to find the nearest Community Mental Health Center(s)
