About Us

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 disorders. Our mission is to provide quality, effective mental health services to the citizens of Hinds County.
