Regional Mental Health Coalition

It takes a collective, intentional effort to change the conversation and reduce stigma surrounding mental illness. The Regional Mental Health Coalition represents government, healthcare, mental health, judicial, education, faith and workplace communities from the 10 northeast Indiana counties. This group works to ensure collaboration and communication in the area of mental health, advocates for policy and systemic changes, and champions the effort to make mental health care accessible to all.

This coalition was launched in 2016 after The Lutheran Foundation’s Mental and Behavioral Health Needs Assessment recommended forming a regional advocacy body to speak to both policy and larger structural issues in mental and behavioral health, as well as to combat the stigma associated with them.
