The MBHP Family Advisory Council
The purpose of the MBHP Family Advisory Council is to act as a liaison between family members of consumers and the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership (MBHP). Council members advise MBHP and offer recommendations and feedback about programming and services. The council serves as a forum for participants to express their views on Members’ issues, offer suggestions for improvements, and share their unique perspectives on the system.
The application process is rather simple: once you fill out the attached form, you can either e-mail, fax, or mail it back to us at the address listed on the form. The application will then be reviewed by the council. You’ll be invited to attend a council meeting, after which the council will vote on your membership. Council members are compensated with a $50 stipend for each meeting they attend and are reimbursed for travel expenses.
The MBHP Family Advisory Council meets on the first Monday of every month from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in downtown Boston. We ask that council members commit to attending as many meetings in person as circumstance allows.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kaitlyn Sudol at (617) 350-1952! Thank you and we look forward to reviewing your application!
