Henrico Area Mental Health and Developmental Services (HAMHDS) believes it is important for individuals to receive services in the community where they live so they can be supported by family and friends on their journey to recovery. Here at HAMHDS we strive for an inclusive, healthy, and safe community where individuals and families live meaningful lives and have been since opening the doors in 1969.
In accordance with the Code of Virginia, Title 37.1, Chapter 10, we provide comprehensive community mental health, developmental disability, and substance abuse services to over 9,000 individuals and families in Henrico, Charles City, and New Kent Counties. We are one of 40 Community Services Boards in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Services are offered using person centered and recovery focused treatment models where dignity is promoted, diversity is embraced, and perseverance is celebrated. We recognize that the level of service each person needs is varied. No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay, there is a sliding fee schedule available.
Our agency has programs to support all ages, to include babies with developmental delays, teens and young adults who are experiencing early symptoms of psychosis or trauma, children and adults with developmental disabilities, adults with a serious mental illness, and those desiring to live a substance use free life.
