Welcome to the Barnstable County Department of Human Services’ Public Health and Wellness website - a resource for individuals, families, and agencies with public health questions or concerns. The site provides a vetted medical library, community health indicator data, evidence-based model programs, 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.
Barnstable County’s 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”.
