JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KDKZ-TV) The Missouri Department of Mental Health is in the process of notifying 1,000 individuals that their personal information may have been mailed to an incorrect address by the Department. The disclosure was caused by a clerical error in printing mailing labels.
The type of information released only included participant name. No medical or financial information was released as a result of the inadvertent mailing.
The clerical error impacted the mailing labels on survey questionnaires mailed on January 16, 2018. The Department has since identified and corrected the error.
In compliance with federal and state privacy laws, the Department has sent written notices to individuals affected by the mailing. Individuals who receive a notification from the Department may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll-free 1-800-207-9329 to address any concerns.
