Mental Health Service Category Changes

The Medical Home Portal Services Directory (for the Nationwide "www" region plus our six partner states) have information about thousands of service providers. We organize our providers into categories to make it easier for users to find them. We also use categories on our content pages to connect users to service providers related to the diagnosis or topic they're reading about.
We regularly review and update our service categories. Most of these changes are small, but we recently completed a total overhaul of our Mental Health/Counseling > … (see ID providers [489]) categories. This year-long project involved collaboration with staff from partner states as well as consultation with mental health experts. The new Mental Health/Counseling categories allow users to locate mental health providers by a variety of relevant characteristics, including level of service (inpatient, intensive outpatient, outpatient, etc), age group served, and issues of specialty.
Please explore our new Mental Health/Counseling service categories, which are still being populated with providers, and don't hesitate to send us Feedback.

Search Improvements

Did you know that the Medical Home Portal has hundreds of pages of content? These include:
Navigating all that content can be a challenge, so we're working on improvements to site search for the Portal. In the near future, you'll be able to search for results from specific sections of the Portal (For Parents & Families, Services Directory, etc.). Search is part of how people navigate the internet and better search feature will make it easier for you to get the results you want searching on the Portal.
