Department of Mental Health Strategic Plan FY16-FY18


State Policies & Initiatives: 

Goal 1 and Goal 2 set forth DMH’s vision of individuals receiving services having a direct and active role in designing and planning the services they receive as well as evaluating how well the system meets and addresses their expressed needs. This includes all populations - mental health, substance use and intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. These Goals also highlight the transformation to a community-based service system. This transformation is woven throughout the entire Strategic Plan; however, this goal emphasizes the development of new and expanded services in the priority areas of crisis services, housing, supported employment, long-term community supports and other specialized services to help individuals transition from institutions to the community and help individuals remain in the community.
