The Adult Mental Health Division seeks to improve the mental health of
Hawai'i's people by reducing the prevalence of emotional disorders, and
mental illness. Services include mental health education, treatment and
rehabilitation through community-based mental health centers, and an
in-patient state hospital facility for the mentally-ill, including
those referred through courts and the criminal justice system.
CAMHD aims to improve the emotional well-being of children and
adolescents, and to preserve and strengthen their families by assuring
early access to a child and adolescent-centered, family-focused
community-based coordinated system of care that addresses the child's
and adolescent's physical, social, emotional, and other developmental
needs within the least restrictive environment.
