The State of Mental Health in Missouri

Michigan currently ranks 24th in the United States for mental healthcare. The Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) is responsible for the reformation of their current mental healthcare system, and for providing the resources necessary to build resilience in their communities. The DMH aims to instill hope in their community through opportunities and community inclusion. This begins with their initiative of public mental illness education. Coupled with a rising standard of quality care, and accessibility to rehabilitation support services, we should see Missouri’s ranking rise in the coming years.

Missouri’s DMH emphasizes that unique participant characteristics must be respected. All ages, ethnicities, genders, races, religions, sexual orientations, and socio-economic conditions are welcome to utilize DMH’s many mental health programs. WIth this basis for inclusivity, the state is hoping to see an increase in participation from their diverse communities, whether they are seeking treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist, or joining community mental health groups. Improving on accessibility in all phases of mental illness, from prevention, to treatment and recovery, will be imperative in the DMH’s progress, and more-so in the wellbeing and prosperity of all Missouri residents. This includes access to therapists, psychologists, and counselors throughout the state.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse, call the Division of Behavioral Health (DBH) at 573-751-4942.

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