General Information and Access to Services

The Department of Psychiatry’s clinical practice at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is called Dartmouth-Hitchcock Psychiatric Associates (DHPA). Through DHPA, we offer a range of mental health and addiction services to adults, elders, children and their families.

All of our services can be accessed through our Central Access office (800) 556-6249. This office will help connect you with the service that is most likely to be able to meet your needs. Clinicians in this office can help you sort out what kind of care makes the most sense at this time if you are unsure.
