Kentucky Mental Health Coalition

This coalition was established in 1982 by nine mental health organizations to support collaboration and to speak with one advocacy voice for the prevention and treatment of mental illness and the promotion of mental health.  In 2003, the KMHC membership approved a reframed and broadened mission:  To bring together the collective voices of consumers, family members, advocates and providers to educate the public, to engage policy makers and to increase the resources necessary to address the Commonwealth’s human service needs while improving the mental health and well-being of all Kentuckians.  Voting membership in KMHC is limited to organizations, 80 of which are current members; individuals may also join.  The member organizations pay annual dues which vary as to whether they are statewide or local and whether they are advocacy organizations, service delivery agencies or professional associations.
