The State of Mental Health in Delaware

Delaware ranks 11th in the United States for mental healthcare due, in large part, to the Mental Health Association of Delaware (MHA-DE). This nonprofit, citizen-run organization has a not-so-simple mission of providing education, support, and advocacy to every resident. Residents are given access to outpatient therapy, psychiatry, and specific treatment options, i.e. Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), Intensive Case Management (ICM), and Intensive Psychiatric Hospitals (IMD). The goal is to provide accessible treatment, while encouraging self-sufficiency. Training therapists, counselors, and psychologists, ensures that residents will receive quality care. The MHA-DE aims to alleviate the financial burdens from those who suffer from mental illness, as they connect with a provider that meets their mental health needs. By increasing awareness, easing access to therapists, psychologists, and school counselors, and developing the workforce, Delaware is on track to achieve their goals of education, support, and advocacy.

Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH)

Delaware’s DSAMH uses the START (Substance Use Treatment & Recovery Transformation) model to improve their current rates of substance abuse. This model includes connecting you with a therapist, a peer support specialist, and resources for self-sufficiency. These resources can range from medical treatment to employment, housing, and transportation.  You can find more specific information on the Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health here.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse in Delaware, call the Delaware Hope Line at 1-833-946-7333. This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
