Welcome to our website, which I hope you will use as a trusted resource to get to know the services we offer within our communities. NEDHSA provides services and treatment to people diagnosed with major mental illnesses, developmental disabilities and addictive disorders throughout 12 parishes in northeastern Louisiana: Caldwell, East Carroll, Franklin, Jackson, Lincoln, Madison, Morehouse, Ouachita, Richland, Tensas, Union and West Carroll.
NEDHSA is dedicated to transforming how we provide vital services to our citizens. We bring innovative programs to our citizens, which include integration of behavioral health with primary care services; services for children and adolescents with behavioral disorders that are at risk for experiencing a psychiatric or behavioral emergency; and collaborations with law enforcement agencies that help first responders know how to recognize a mental health issue. We work to break down barriers that may keep citizens from obtaining treatment, like providing transportation to health clinics in rural areas; and ensuring that we keep the specific needs of the people in our communities at the forefront of our efforts.
Just as we hold all of our efforts to a high standard, we expect the same effort from our citizens. We must all be accountable for our actions. We must be willing to actively participate in living our most productive lives. We believe that every person we serve possesses the ability to reach their greatest potential.
At the heart of our daily work, we are dedicated to bring even greater access to the crucial services we provide; to nurture an environment of unsurpassed customer service where people are treated with genuine kindness, courtesy and a caring attitude; and we strive to offer competent, quality care that fosters hope, trust and the most beneficial health outcomes to the people we serve.
I hope you find our website to be a useful and valuable resource. Together we can ensure that our clients’ voices and their cries are heard.
