Since 1971 Hinds Behavioral Health Services (HBHS) has specialized in community mental health services for adults, children and youth, families, elderly, and those with chemical dependencies and substance use. Our mission is to ensure seamless integrated care to adults, children, and families in Hinds County by providing compassionate, person-centered, and recovery oriented healthcare services.
We are one of the 14 regional community mental health centers in Mississippi. The Hinds County Mental Health Commission, a public entity made up of members appointed by the Hinds County Board of Supervisors and two “at-large” commissioners govern HBHS. Each Commission member represents one of the five Hinds County Supervisory districts.
