Maryland Behavioral Health Coalition

The Maryland Behavioral Health Coalition brings together 100+ mental health and substance use disorder organizations representing consumers, advocates, family members, service providers and behavioral health professionals. We are united in our mission to improve behavioral health access and service delivery for all Marylanders.

Since its inception in 1993, the Coalition has achieved numerous legislative and policy victories in behavioral health. These include passage of the Maryland Mental Health Parity Law, the establishment of an integrated, performance-based public behavioral health system, and the protection and expansion of funding for mental health and substance use disorder services.
