General information

Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC)

The UACF Institute represents the interest of family members, youth, and Parent Partners/advocates within the statewide mental health community.  Our organization has a considerable stake in the success of the mission, overall goals, and transformative programs integral to the Mental Health Services Act.

The MHSA has the potential to reach all UACF members and all other clients and family members who want and need mental health services in this state.  It is important to activate our members’ engagement in the MHSA and to engage in effective communication with the diverse communities throughout our state, sharing important information about MHSA policies, processes, services and programs while collaborating on strategies to address system dysfunction and unmet needs.
