Mental Hygiene, Department of

Mission

The Department of Mental Hygiene operates through three independent agencies – the Office of Mental Health, the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities, and the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. All three agencies provide services directly to their clients through State-operated facilities and receive reimbursement for these services, primarily through Medicaid funds.

Organization and Staffing

The Department of Mental Hygiene does not employ staff.

Budget Highlights

Patient revenues in the Patient Income Account are pledged first to the payment of debt service on outstanding Mental Hygiene bonds. The FY 2019 Executive Budget recommends $600 million in new appropriations from the Patient Income Account and the Mental Hygiene Program Fund – the same level of funding as in FY 2018. These appropriations may be distributed to any of the three agencies, or the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs, in order to access additional revenues made available, or through a decreased set-aside for debt service resulting from planned debt management actions.
