Family Resource Education Center

Mississippi State Hospital's (MSH) Family Resource Education Center serves as an information library for families of patients/residents admitted to MSH and as a source of research for MSH's treatment teams. The center provides various educational resources and a staff member is available to help family members research topics of interest as needed. This service is provided to strengthen our relationships with families in the continuum of care.
