|Mental Health Planning Advisory Council|
The Mental Health Planning Advisory Council is funded by the Community Mental Health Services Block Grant. The Mental Health Planning Advisory Council does not receive funds from the State General Fund.
The Mental Health Planning Advisory Council (MHPAC) for the State of Nevada was established in 1989 with the goal of serving as an advocate for chronically mentally ill individuals, severely emotionally disturbed children and youth, and other individuals with mental illnesses or emotional problems.
The Council is a group of concerned people who work to advocate for adults and children with mental illnesses throughout Nevada. The members of the Council work in a variety of ways to improve the way services are provided to consumers, to help bring more money into the State system, to promote awareness of mental health issues, and to provide education and training opportunities.
The three duties outlined for mental health planning and advisory councils (PACs) in federal law are as follows:
