Welcome to the official Internet site of Missouri’s Mental Health Transformation initiative. This site will provide updates of transformation initiatives as well as information on the progress of the active workgroups chartered to address specific topics designated as priorities by the state Transformation Working Group.
Missouri is one of nine states to receive a five-year federal grant for the transformation of its mental health service system. Though based in the state Department of Mental Health, this system involves all human service agencies whose objective is improved quality of life for the citizens of this state.
Under the leadership and charge of the governor of Missouri, the Transformation Working Group has brought together representatives of mental health, health, social services, employment, youth, older adult, and other services. The common goals are to foster communities of hope through cooperation and collaboration of effort, and to employ a public health approach to mental health service delivery.
