The Office of State Hospital Management (OSHM) was created in August, 2006 in order to transform state hospitals intro a truly cohesive system of care.

The Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services operates four psychiatric hospitals (AncoraGreystone Park, TrentonAnn Klein Forensic Center), one of which is a forensic center (click here for State Psychiatric Hospital Catchment Areas).  Our goal is to ensure that the four adult hospitals function in a similar manner.  Some examples include organizational structure (e.g., Tables of Organization), provision of active treatment, census reduction efforts, implementation of evidence-based practices, reduction of violence and workforce development initiatives.

The Office of State Hospital Management recognizes the importance of family involvement in the care and treatment of their loved ones.  In order to involve family members, a Family Partnership Program was developed.

The OSHM can be reached by mail addressed to:  DMHAS, OSHM, P.O. Box 700, Trenton, NJ 08625 or by phone at (609) 777-0677.
