State Hospital Organizations

NASMHPD has an affiliation with the approximately 195 state psychiatric hospitals located throughout the United States. The facilities include hospitals for children, adults, older persons, and people who have entered the mental health system via the court system. NASMHPD holds a National Summit every two years to convene the superintendents of all of these hospitals.

In addition, NASMHPD has helped establish the following four regional organizations, each of which meet annually: the Southern States Psychiatric Hospital Association (SSPHA), the Midwestern Association for State Mental Health Organizations (MASMHO), the Western Psychiatric State Hospital Association (WPSHA), and the Northeast Regional State Psychiatric Hospital Association (NERSPHA).A contact for each regional organization is listed below.
