Advocacy

A critical part of carrying out MHAI’s mission is to advocate for better and more adequate treatment for persons with mental illness. MHAI develops and supports policy positions on key mental health issues working with legislators, state agencies and other not-for-profit groups to advocate for improved policies.  Each year, MHAI develops policy priorities that are determined by our Board of Directors and carried out primarily through the work of the Public Policy Committee.

We advocate, educate and serve Illinois communities on the local, state and federal levels.
