MHAI co-founded and currently Chairs the Mental Health Summit (MHS), an advocacy coalition dedicated to improving the mental health system of care in Illinois.
MHS develops and supports policy positions as needed in partnership with legislators, state agencies and other not-for-profit advocacy groups to increase resources for persons with mental illnesses in Illinois.
MHAI works in alliance with MHS members to appropriately identify the challenges and problems in the currently under-funded mental health system in Illinois, and actively collaborate with key leaders and stakeholders to seek alternatives and resolutions to these challenges to ensure appropriate care and treatment are provided for consumers.
