The Comprehensive Mental Health Act of 1987 mandated the establishment of Mental Health Local Advisory Councils in every Minnesota county. Local Advisory Council membership gives voice to individuals who know firsthand the strengths and weaknesses of the mental health system including adults who receive mental health services, those who received services as children, and family members.
The purpose of the Local Advisory Council (LAC) is to use the knowledge and experience of a broad range of stakeholders to find ways to improve local mental health services. The LAC provides the Rice County Board of Commissioners with an annual report of unmet mental health needs to be included in the county's mental health plan, and advises the County Board regarding needed mental health services.
Interested consumers and community professionals are welcome to attend our meetings.
