Community Mental Health Centers in Mississippi

Regional community mental health/mental retardation centers operate under the supervision of regional commissions appointed by county boards of supervisors comprising their respective service areas.  The 15 regional centers make available a range of community-based mental health services, as well as substance abuse and intellectual/developmental disabilities services to all 82 counties in Mississippi.

The Regional Commission Act, passed in 1966 and amended in 1972, 1974, and 1997, provides the structure for this community program development by authorizing counties to join together and form multi-county regional commissions on mental health and mental retardation, to plan and implement services in their respective areas

The Mississippi Department of Mental Health is responsible for certifying, monitoring, and assisting the regional community mental health centers.  These regional community mental health centers are the primary service providers with whom the Department of Mental Health contracts to provide community-based services.
