Who We Are

Our statewide network leads the way to accessible behavioral health care in Missouri.

Our 30+ member agencies utilize the continuum of care model, which offers the benefits of receiving individualized types and levels of treatment while helping people progress through a quality, cost-effective, and least restrictive system of care.

What We Do

Leading big picture conversations about whole person wellness, in Missouri and beyond.

Our network of member agencies throughout the state provide a comprehensive array of psychiatric and substance abuse treatment services and supports as appropriate for children/adolescents, adults and senior adults.

In addition to supporting our members, the Council develops programs and promotes best practices that improve behavioral health in Missouri—anywhere the system and individual meet.

  • Public Policy Advocacy

    The Council advocates with state and federal government leaders to enact legislation and promote increases in appropriations aimed to improve the lives of Missourians diagnosed with severe mental illness or a substance use disorder.

  • Training and Education

    The Council’s education and events team coordinates and plans logistics with partners to accomplish successful trainings, learning collaboratives, and conferences throughout the year.

  • Data Management and Reporting

    Missouri is a national leader in behavioral healthcare, and we continue to show and share our integrated data solutions and improved outcomes throughout the country.

The scope of our work is vast, and we take a team approach in everything we do.

Board of Directors

The Council is a collaborative association that is structured and guided by consistent feedback from our member agencies. Our team hosts and organizes a robust committee and workgroup schedule to provide ample opportunity for discussions, collaborations, problem-solving, and decisions on emerging issues, as well as sharing successful strategies and ideas with peers.

All member agency chief executives and delegates sit on the Board. Affiliate member agencies hold non-voting seats. Elected CEOs holding positions on the Board also serve on the Executive Committee.
