Mississippi Department of Mental Health

The Mississippi Department of Mental Health is committed to making available a comprehensive system of services and supports so all Mississippians have access to the least restrictive and most appropriate level of services and supports that will meet their needs. Our system is person-centered and is built on the strengths of individuals and families while meeting their needs for special services. Services should be provided on a continuum of where the person is at that time and what their needs are.

Mississippi’s mental health service delivery system is comprised of three major components: 1) state-operated programs and community service programs, 2) regional community mental health centers, 3) and other nonprofit/profit service agencies/organizations.

Inspiring hope, helping individuals on their road to recovery, and improving resiliency are key factors to the success of the people we serve.

Welcome to the Department of Mental Health

Each of us has health and well-being. To flourish we must take our mental health into account. As the World Health Organization (WHO) says, “there is no health without mental health.”

According to the World Health Organization, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Mental health is an integral part of this definition.”

The encouraging news is we can strengthen our mental health and well-being. We can lower our stress levels and increase our ability to deal with challenges. This also improves our physical health.

We know, for example, that how we care for our children as they grow impacts their later health and well-being. We also know that connection with others who may be going through a difficult time can make a big difference.  It’s important to know that

“Ronald K. Baker PhD, MD was a resident in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Arizona in the late 70s when I was a junior faculty member. We did many cases together, and I remember him well, and fondly, as an excellent resident and physician, always on top of things. He had an engaging personality, scraggly mustache, and a wry (sometimes smirky) smile and sense of humor. Like me, he was a bit quirky, with esoteric interests (I wasn’t surprised to learn he cared for distressed ferrets). He had excellent hands for procedures, but roughly hewn, as if he worked on cars or other labor-intensive hobbies in his spare time. 

He had been a chemist and I queried him about van der Waals forces, the subtle quantum interactions by which anesthetic gases erase consciousness, still mysterious to this day. Favoring true ‘chemical’ bonds, Ron disdained the weak and

Resident dentist with young patient

In 2010, the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s joined forces to combat the growing crisis of childhood dental disease by combining health services, education, research and public policy under one roof at The Center for Pediatric Dentistry (CPD). In 2013, the Department of Pediatric Dentistry relocated to the CPD.

From infant check-ups and early screening to parental education and special needs access, the CPD equips parents with the service and knowledge to ensure a healthy child and uses a multi-disciplined approach to solving the rampant issues of childhood oral health.

Mission

The mission of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry is to promote the health of infants, children, adolescents, and persons with special needs, through education, research, and service, by:

  • Educating pediatric dentists for a lifetime of continuous learning and leadership.
  • Generating new knowledge through basic and clinical research.
  • Promoting effective preventive measures to ensure a lifetime of oral health.
