Mental Hygiene Planning

Effective local planning is the ongoing process of helping to define service needs and gaps—and providing the framework needed to align available resources with identified priorities.

Over the past several years, under the auspices of the Mental Hygiene Planning Committee (a standing committee of the Inter Office Coordinating Council), county and state agency representatives have been working together to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the local planning process. This section contains materials relevant to local planning.
