Consumer Advisory Board Membership
The Consumer Advisory Board exists to gather feedback directly from consumers and community stakeholders. The board will identify gaps in services, consumer needs, barriers to treatment and make recommendations for meeting those needs. Members consist of a mixture of volunteers including individuals living with a mental health and/or substance use disorder, and physical health condition(s) (“Consumers”), family members or friends who identify themselves as a caregiver to a Consumer (“Family Members”), and other community stakeholders with interest and involvement in the primary care and behavioral health integrated care delivery system. At least fifty-one percent (51%) of the Board Members must self-identify as Consumers or Family Members.
