In 2011, the Lewis and Clark Board of County Commissioners passed Resolution 2011-174 authorizing the creation of the Behavioral Health Local Advisory Council (LAC). The purpose of the LAC is to assist in the improvement of Lewis and Clark County Behavioral Health (Mental Illness and Substance Use Disorders) services and to review and make recommendations about behavioral health services. The group consists of behavioral health providers, local professionals, and community consumers, who are people with lived experience (or their family members) with behavioral health disorders. The LAC utilizes the four workgroups to guide the work.
Both the LAC and Leaders Team meet monthly and are actively engaged in Lewis and Clark County. The LAC meetings are open to the public, and a meeting link along with contact information is available on the webpage.
