By statute, 51% of the membership must those who are receiving behavioral health services or their family members.
What We Do
We examine services available in Hill County and work toward solutions to fill gaps in those services. We also provide education and awareness activities centered around mental health and substance use.
Local Advisory Councils are part of the state behavioral health system. We work with the Central Service Area Authority, Behavioral Health Advisory Council, and the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services Addictive and Mental Disorders Division.
Our meetings are open to the public and are held the second Monday of each month at noon. Meetings are generally held at the Havre-Hill County Library and can be accessed online.
