The State of Mental Health in Mississippi

Mississippi currently ranks 33rd in the United States for mental healthcare. The Department of Mental Health (DMH) in Mississippi is composed of nine primary board members who oversee the quality of care and services that are delivered to Mississippians. Essentially, the DMH is responsible for the reformation of their current mental healthcare system, so that they may provide the resources necessary to build resilience in their communities. The DMH determines the standard of care that all Mississippi residents can expect when they seek treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist.

The members of the DMH include a physician, psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, a social worker with experience in the field of mental health, and one citizen representative from each of the five congressional districts in Mississippi. With bimonthly meetings being held open to the public, the DMH encourages community involvement and inclusivity when discussing mental health. The professionals on the board take the feedback from the community to shape the future of the state of mental health within Mississippi. It’s this active participation that opens a dialogue and reduces the stigma around mental health. This community feedback is used to design services, and raise the bar for the quality of care that residents are currently experiencing in all phases of mental illness, from prevention, to treatment and recovery. The DMH aims to ensure all residents access to the resources that promote their well-being and ability to prosper. This includes access to therapists, psychologists, and counselors throughout the state.
