DMH is organized into five geographic areas, each of which is managed by an Area Director. Each Area is divided into local Service Sites. Each Area oversees an integrated system of state and provider-operated adult and child/adolescent mental health services. Citizen advisory boards at every level of the organization participate in agency planning and oversight. DMH allocates funds from its state appropriation and federal block grant to the Areas for both state-operated and contracted services. This includes state hospitals, community mental health centers, contracted inpatient units and a range of community-based services.
