About Us

Established in 1965, the Macon County Mental Health Board supports services for over 12,000 annually throughout Macon County.

The mission of the Board is to assure that a comprehensive and coordinated system of effective and efficient public mental health services is available and accessible to all of the citizens of Macon County in need of such services.

The Community Mental Health Act defines mental health services as those services related to mental illness/mental health, services related to developmental disabilities, and services related to substance abuse.

The Mental Health Board engages in planning activities designed to better determine the mental health service needs within Macon County.  The Board oversees the provision of disaster mental health services and critical incident stress management for emergency service providers.
