This line item funds hospitals and other in-patient facilities operated by the Department of Mental Health (DMH). A small portion of funding from this line item supports services for children.

Emergency and acute mental health services are provided under an inter-agency service agreement between DMH and MassHealth. This account supports in-patient services by DMH hospitals, DMH inpatient units located at Tewksbury and Shattuck Hospitals, and Community Mental Health Centers with inpatient capacity, as well as contracted inpatient services and other associated costs.
