The State of Mental Health in North Carolina

North Carolina currently ranks 34th in the United States for mental healthcare. The Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services (MH/DD/SAS), under the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), is responsible for improving their current mental healthcare system, and for providing the resources necessary to build resilience within their communities. They determine the standard of care that all North Carolina residents can expect when they seek treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist. The MH/DD/SAS is working on establishing an integrative care model, while improving on accessibility in all phases of mental illness, from prevention, to treatment and recovery. They work to ensure 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.

The Adult Mental Health Services team within the MH/DD/SAS reviews programs and makes improvements where necessary. They assess program functioning by analyzing data for impact, and monitoring compliance with state and federal regulations.  They help with the technical and administrative issues that interfere with program development.  The team partners with other state agencies, providers, planning groups, and advisory councils to gather as much data as possible and leverage that data to influence policies and planning.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse, call the Alcohol & Drug Council of North Carolina at 1-800-688-4232.
