Mental Health Local Advisory Council

The Butte-Silver Bow Mental Health Local Advisory Council (LAC) is a coalition of community members and agency representatives who assess, plan and strengthen behavioral health services in the community. The LAC works to identify gaps in mental health services; recommends potential additions to services within the community; analyzes and discusses problems with service providers, advocacy groups, public officials and the general public; facilitates accurate and timely communication between the community and its governing entities; assesses the effectiveness of local mental health services and suggests ways services might be more effective; serves as a catalyst and facilitator in solving local mental health service problems; organizes and coordinates needed services in the community, and educates the community on mental health issues. The LAC was created by Council Resolution 154-45 and was unanimously approved by the Butte-Silver Bow Council of Commissioners on Nov. 4, 2015. The 23-member LAC is comprised of 12 members with the lived experience of mental illness (or a family member of someone with lived experience) and 11 members representing various agencies, including the Butte-Silver Bow Council of Commissioners.
