The Commission for Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services

The Commission for Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services (Commission) of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services was created in 1973 as part of the Executive Organization Act. Its creation, powers, and duties are set forth, in part, in N.C.G.S. ยง 143B-147. Its mission is to promote excellence in prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation programs for persons with mental illness, developmental disabilities, and substance abuse disorders in North Carolina.

The Commission has the authority to adopt, amend and repeal rules to be used in the implementation of state and local mental health, developmental disability, and substance abuse service programs. The Commission also has the authority to modify specific storage, security, transaction limits, and record-keeping requirements that apply to particular pseudoephedrine products.

In his letter to the citizens of North Carolina, the Chairman of the Commission, Dr. Greg Olley, invites comments and questions from the public as the Commission works to serve the citizens of our great state.
