The Department of Community Mental Health plans, oversees and coordinates services for individuals - and their families - with mental illness, developmental/intellectual disabilities and substance use disorders. The 2016 edition of the complete directory of partnering agencies and organizations is available on Publications and Forms.

We have created an online resource directory that we hope residents and professionals will use to locate the many and varied mental health resources in Westchester County.

Coronavirus information and how the DCMH can help
The Department of Community Mental Health recognizes that this can be a stressful time for many people. The thought of having had family members exposed or being exposed to a virus yourself can create feelings of uncertainty, fear or anxiety. Our office is here to help. If you have specific health-related questions there are people you can contact.

People under self-quarantine, or exposure to a known case, should call (866) 588-0195. The NYS Department of Health COVID-19 Hotline is (888) 364-3065. For Westchester County residents who are looking for COVID-19 Information, call 211, where contact specialists can provide assistance.

If you are experiencing anxiety or stress that has begun to affect your daily life and you feel you need support, call our office at (914) 995-1900 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. To send a text message, use #914-461-7281.
