The Monroe County Office of Mental Health (MCOMH) is committed to improving the health and quality of life of county residents who are affected by mental illness, developmental disabilities, alcohol and other drugs.

MCOMH is an administrative division within the Department of Human Services and is the governmental entity authorized to receive and allocate public mental hygiene funds in accordance with NYS law.  As the agency charged with system oversight and encouragement of programs aimed at prevention and treatment, the MCOMH:

  • Develops a comprehensive county plan for mental health, developmental disability and alcohol/substance abuse services.
  • Allocates funding to local agencies based on community priorities, treatment outcomes, and program performance.
  • Ensures coordination of services across levels of care and among an array of community providers.
  • Assists in the transformation of our system to providing flexible services that are person/family centered, strengths-based, culturally competent, recovery-oriented and evidence-based.

To accomplish these objectives, the MCOMH oversees the local service system through a variety of sub-contracts; provides fiscal oversight and technical assistance to agencies; and collaborates extensively with other DHS and county divisions, service providers, and community groups.  Provider contracts are monitored by Coordinated Care Services, Inc. (CCSI) on behalf of MCOMH.  Click here for more information about CCSI.
