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.

We are one of the 11 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.
