We fight for high-quality, community-based care for families and individuals with mental illness, addiction, and substance-use disorders by providing leadership and statewide coordination on important public policy, financing, preferred clinical models, and quality assurance issues.

Our members are the primary providers of publicly-funded behavioral healthcare services in Maryland, serving over 135,000 Maryland residents annually, and employing over 13,000 people.
