National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare
The National Council is an association of 1,300 organizations that help people in trouble — adults and children with mental illnesses or addiction disorders. The people our members treat live with their families or alone; some are in hospitals, jails, or juvenile detention facilities and others are in residential programs, foster care, or group homes. Each year, our member organizations give nearly 6 million children, adults, and families in communities across the country the chance to recover and lead productive lives.
We’re proud of our member organizations. Our job is to help members do their jobs. As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), the National Council advocates for policies that ensure that people who are ill can access services. And we offer state-of-the-science education and technical assistance so that services are efficient and effective. (NCCBH)
