The Mental Health Advisory Council (MHAC) is a coalition of Veterans and community partners working together with VA staff in order to improve mental health services. The MHAC envisions a healthcare system where mental health programs are patient centered, supportive of the Veteran's personal recovery process, and empower Veterans diagnosed with a mental illness to work on their goals and wellness planning. The council also strives to reduce the stigma of mental illness. The MHAC seeks participation from Veterans, their families, and mental health professionals in order to educate, advocate, and empower Veterans, families, staff, and stakeholders.
