Welcome to Barnstable County Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health website - a resource for individuals, families, and agencies with behavioral health questions or concerns. The site provides a vetted mental health library, community health indicator data, e-learning opportunities, current legislation, related news, and a robust local Health and Human Services Directory. The service directory contains comprehensive resources on aging and disability; behavioral health; crisis services; disease prevention and treatment; housing and homelessness; public health; substance use; and basic needs.
The Department of Human Services plans, develops, and coordinates regional solutions to Cape Cod’s most pressing health and human service issues. We foster and support collaborative initiatives with data analysis, strategic planning, and investment of county, state and federal resources. Our goal is to create a “Healthy Connected Cape Cod”.
