The Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities, and Hospitals (BHDDH), in partnership with Rhode Island Quality Institute (RIQI), maintains this website to provide public information about bed availability for mental health and substance use disorder services. The goal of the RI Behavioral Health Open Beds (RI BHOB) system is to efficiently collect and distribute bed availability information, reducing patient delays in accessing appropriate emergency, crisis stabilization, inpatient, and recovery services.

Descriptions of the services included in this website are provided below:
