National Association of Mental Health Planning and Advisory Councils

Image of NAMHPAC logo The Mission of National Association of Mental Health Planning & Advisory Councils: Working to provide support, information, and technical assistance for state-based mental healthcare providers located all across the United States.

NAMHPAC provides support, policy development, knowledge products, and technical assistance to the nation's State-based mental health planning and advisory councils. NAMHPAC is a non-profit organization whose membership is nation-wide and includes members from each State and Territory mental health planning council.

NAMHPAC provides technical support, opportunities for people to share information and ideas across states, and a national voice on mental health planning issues. The people active in NAMHPAC and a small part-time staff write resource materials, organize trainings, and assist each other through telephone, fax and e-mail technical assistance. To read a history of planning councils and NAMHPAC, read NAMHPAC's whitepaper on the "Evolution of Federal Mental Health Planning Legislation" by Joseph de Raismes III (Colorado Mental Health Planning Council).
