The mission for the South Carolina Department of Mental Health is to give priority to the seriously mentally ill and to emotionally disturbed children and their families. Other services will be provided as resources allow.
Mental Health Services are offered to adults, adolescents, children and their families. Services are provided in programs that are offered in individual clinic locations.
Treatment services are geared toward a model of recovery. People are served based on their individual strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences.
Mental Health Care is a team effort and each member has the responsibility to do their part. The more you know about how the process of recovery works, the more successful we will all be.
We welcome you to the team. We look forward to working with you during your Recovery.
