Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to the Acadiana Area Human Services District (AAHSD) website.  AAHSD was created legislatively by Act 373 of 2008 to provide local leadership and management for behavioral health and developmental disability services in our seven-parish area - Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, Saint Landry, Saint Martin, and Vermilion parishes.  We are governed by a ten-member Board of Directors; seven members appointed by local parish authorities and three members appointed by the Governor's office. 

This site has been created to provide information to you regarding our organization and services.  Browse through the site and links for information regarding access, intake, locations, news/events, and services.  Please do not hesitate to contact us with any comments or questions; we welcome your feedback to guide us in delivering appropriate, effective, and efficient services. 

We are here to serve Acadiana with quality compassionate care.
