Mental health services are funded through Missouri’s Department of Mental Health (DMH), which plays a
critical role in providing access to mental health care for 170,000 adults and children in Missouri who struggle with serious mental illness, substance abuse, or developmental disabilities.

The majority of treatment is provided through a network of more than 1,300 community-based nonprofit
partners that contract with DMH to provide care.
