COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, South Central Alabama Mental Health is taking every precaution to protect our patients, staff and the community.  For this reason, our buildings are closed to the public.  Therapy services will be provided via telephone.  Please make sure to contact your local outpatient office to update your phone number in order for your therapist to contact you for your session.  Injections will still be provided, but you must call first and someone will assist you with instructions.  Should you have a crisis, please call our 24/7 Helpline at 1-877-530-0002.

Thank you for your patience during this critical time.
