Northern Nevada Adult Mental Health (NNAMHS)

General Information
Description of ProgramFounded in 1882, Northern Nevada Adult Mental Health occupies part of 92 acres deeded to the State in the 1800's for the benefit of the mentally ill and developmentally disabled. Located adjacent to the Truckee River in Sparks, Nevada, it shares grounds with Lake's Crossing Center, the State Forensic Hospital, and Sierra Regional Center, the treatment center for the developmentally disabled. In recent years NNAMHS has developed from the only state hospital in Nevada to a comprehensive, community-based, mental health system supported by an acute-care psychiatric inpatient hospital.

In addition to the Dini-Townsend Inpatient Facility, numerous outpatient services are available, including the Washoe Community Mental Health Center, Outpatient Pharmacy, Program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT), Psychosocial Rehabilitation Program (PRP), Consumer Peer Counseling, and Service Coordinator Services.

It is the intention of Northern Nevada Adult Mental Health Services to provide an environment which fully respects human dignity and which consistently reflects human caring.

NNAMHS is certified by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
