Department of Mental Health & Developmental Disabilities
The Department is the state's mental health and developmental disabilities authority and is responsible for system planning, setting policy and quality standards, system monitoring and evaluation, disseminating public information and advocating for persons of all ages who have mental illness, serious emotional disturbance or a developmental disability.
The Department also assists the Bureau of TennCare in the administration of the TennCare Partners Program by developing and implementing a plan to monitor the programmatic aspects of the Partners Program. Monitoring responsibilities include assessment of the adequacy of the provider network and the quality of services provided.
The Department's goal is a comprehensive array of quality prevention, early intervention, treatment, habilitation and rehabilitation services and supports, which are equitably and efficiently allocated statewide, allowing people to live in their own communities within settings based on the needs and choices of individuals and families served.
