Welcome to the new, completely re-designed website for the NH Department of Health and Human Services. We’ve updated and reorganized the site so that you can find what you need quickly and easily.
This video will show you around, and help you get familiar with some of the topics available, as well as learn some accessibility and navigation tips.
Starting off, there is this “How Can We Help You” box, which lists many of our most requested topics.
There’s also a search feature, where you can look for content in both web pages and documents.
This banner section of the website is the same on every page. Let’s look at what else you can do here.
The first accessibility option is to change text size. Other Accessibility options can be found here, including making your curser larger, and changing the contrast, text spacing or font to meet your needs. You can also move the accessibility panel to another spot on the screen where it makes the most sense for you.
You can change the language of the site to any language supported by Google Translate.
In this middle section of the banner, you’ll find a list of contacts. Please note that is not a complete employee directory, but rather the key contact people for various programs and services.
You can search by keyword, or see all the contacts within a particular topic. If you click the “Show All topics” link, you’ll need to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the results of your search.
The site includes many documents and forms. You can find lists of pertinent documents within each of the program pages, but you can also search for any document here.
If you’ve come to the site to report a concern, you can use this link to find the right phone number and information about making a report.
The other thing that appears on every page is this Escape site button, just in case you need to leave the site quickly for safety reasons.
Now let’s take a look at this main menu.
Do you need directions to a district office or other state building? They are all listed here, along with our four main facilities. You can search by zip code, or filter by the specific service you are looking for. Notice that there are more filter options when you click “load more filters.”
When looking for programs and services you’ll notice that you don’t need to know the exact name of the program or agency to find it on this site. Use the programs & services list to narrow your search down by topic.
You can find links for applying for Medicaid or other financial assistance here.
And if you are a business person or employer, there is great information here about opportunities and resources.
Data is in great demand these days, and you can find all the public data and reports that DHHS produces here.
We have an events calendar for publically available events and meetings, as well as press releases, public notices and multimedia resources that the department offers.
Finally, way down at the bottom of every page, there’s a “Submit Feedback” link. We would love to hear from you about your experience with the site – good or bad! Your suggestions will help make our new site even more useful for everyone.
Thank you for visiting!
