This dataset includes data on public mental health facilities that are funded by their State Mental Health Agency (SMHA) or other State agency or department Mental health treatment facilities administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Private for-profit and non-profit mental health facilities that are licensed by the State or accredited by a national accreditation organization.
The Mental Health Treatment Locator does not include facilities whose primary or only focus is the provision of services to persons with Mental Retardation (MR), Developmental Disability (DD), and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI); facilities that provide treatment exclusively to persons with mental illness who are incarcerated, and mental health professionals in private practice (individual) or in a small group practice not licensed or certified as a mental health clinic or (community) mental health center.
SAMHSA endeavors to keep the Locator current. All information in the Locator is updated annually based on facility responses to SAMHSA’s National Mental Health Services Survey (N-MHSS). New facilities are added monthly and updates to facility names, addresses, telephone numbers and services are made weekly, if facilities inform SAMHSA of changes.
