Our members include health and human service organizations, the faith-based community, government entities, advocacy organizations, courts, major medical institutions, the corporate arena, and behavioral health agencies serving adults and children.
Individuals are not able to join the MHAC as members, but we’d be happy to talk with you about how to engage your employer or community organization as a member.
