The State of Mental Health in Alabama

Through increasing awareness, easing access to therapists, psychologists, and school counselors, and developing the psychiatric workforce, the ADMH is armed with the initiatives necessary to increase prevention of mental health illness and substance abuse, and to make counseling treatment more accessible for all Alabamians.

Substance Abuse & Restorative Justice in Alabama

19 of the over 500 counties in the United States that support the Step Up Initiative are in Alabama. Instead of incriminating those with substance abuse problems, the Step Up initiative encourages these counties to provide access to counselors and treatment for those who suffer from mental illness. By connecting a therapist or counselor with the inmate, these counties are prioritizing a system of restorative justice that focuses on addressing the role of  mental healthcare, and exploring potential treatment pathways beyond incarceration. You can find a list of institutions in Alabama that have received funding to develop the Step Up program and provide case management services, here.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse in Alabama, contact the ADMH Substance Use Disorder Helpline at 1-844-307-1760. This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you are LGBTQ+ and you need support, contact The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386.
