The State of Mental Health in Massachusetts

Massachusetts currently ranks 7th in the United States for mental healthcare. The Massachusetts Department of Mental Health is responsible for the state of their current mental healthcare system. The DMH ensures that the resources necessary to build resilience in their communities are accessible and high quality. The DMH is working on improving accessibility in all phases of mental illness, from prevention, to treatment and recovery. The Massachusetts Association for Mental Health (MAMH) also exists to ensure that all residents in Massachusetts have access to the economic and social opportunities that build quality of life, and the mental health needed to be able to pursue such opportunities. The DMH and MAMH ensure that all residents have access to the resources that promote their well-being and ability to prosper. This includes access to therapists, psychologists, and counselors throughout the state.

You can find a seasoned specialist who can work with you through a wide array of mental health concerns, including but not limited to: drug abuse, thoughts of suicide, and severe or persistent mental illness. The MAMH’s mission is to “advance mental health and well being by promoting prevention, early intervention, effective treatment and research to address social, emotional, and mental health challenges...eiminate stigma and discrimination and ensure full social, economic, and political inclusion in all aspects of community life.” These two agencies, the DMH and MAMH, band together to develop an effective public policy surrounding mental health issues.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse, call the Massachusetts Substance Use Helpline at 1-800-327-5050.
