WORKING TO STRENGTHEN AND DEVELOP LOCAL MENTAL HEALTH AUTHORITIES.
Improving the development and delivery of mental health services for persons with mental disabilities
The Association of Community Mental Health Authorities of Illinois (ACMHAI pronounced “ack-my”), established in 1972 is a partnership of organizations committed to the concept of community behavioral health. This commitment is demonstrated by a shared respect and concern for citizens of our communities who experience mental illness, emotional disturbances, substance abuse and developmental disabilities. What separates us from other communities in Illinois is that we not only talk-the-talk, we also walk-the-walk. We invest our community’s dollars in programs and services to address the behavioral health needs of our friends and neighbors.
