Due to the passage of Assembly Bill 488, mental health and public health have merged to become the Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH).  Developmental Services have been consolidated into the Division of Aging and Disability Services.

DPBH is in the process of converting the mental health and public health websites into one website.  It is anticipated that this will take three to six months.  We appreciate your patience while the website is going through this transition.

While the websites are going through the transition, please access the old Mental Health and  Developmental Services website at http://mhds.state.nv.us/.  You can access the Division of Child and Family Services, for children’s mental health
services at http://www.dcfs.state.nv.us/.  The Division of Aging and Disability Services website can be accessed at http://aging.state.nv.us/index.htm.
