Welcome to the South Carolina Department of Mental Health. Our mission is to support the recovery of people with mental illnesses. Through a Statewide network of community mental health centers, clinics,  hospitals, and nursing homes the Department’s clinical staff provide a complete array of medical and support services for children, adults, and families throughout South Carolina. We believe that with the right treatment and support, recovery is possible.

SERVICES: SCDMH is a state agency. As a result, if the county is closed, the outpatient location in that county is closed, too. You can find an up-to-date list of county closures at or on your local television station. **This does not affect SCDMH inpatient facilities, which are staffed with essential personnel.**
Go to the SC Emergency Management Division for up-to-date information about evacuations, closures and delays, etc. Facebook and Twitter: @scemd
