Title: Alabama Dept. Mental Health and Mental Retardation Website


Description: The Alabama Department of Mental Health ADMH is the state agency responsible for serving Alabama citizens with mental illnesses, intellectual disabilities, and substance use disorders. Annually, we serve over 230,000 people through a broad network of state mental illness and intellectual disability facilities and community-based services. These services include residential, outpatient, and prevention programs with respect to substance abuse addiction. We are very proud of the fact that our state operated facilities have achieved and maintained high standards in health care provision. Currently, we operate one developmental center for individuals with intellectual disabilities and six facilities for individuals with mental illnesses. Through community-based services the department contracts with hundreds of local service providers in all 67 counties. Our nearly 3,000 employees are among the best in the nation. From the housekeeping, direct care staff, medical staff, and clinical staff at the facilities to administrative staff at the central office, each person plays an integral part in the overall successful and cost-efficient administration of the ADMH.
