Louisiana Behavioral Health Advisory Council

History of Mental Health Planning and Advisory Councils
With Public Law 102-321, passed in 1992, the federal government dictated mental health planning as a condition of receipt of federal mental health grant funds, and has mandated participation in the planning process by stakeholder groups, including mental health consumers, parents of children with serious emotional or behavioral disturbances and family members.

The Louisiana Behavioral Health Advisory Council is Louisiana's planning organization. The meetings are held at 9:30 am at:

Louisiana Resource Center for Educators
5550 Florida Blvd.
Baton Rouge, LA 70806

Meetings are open to the public and are scheduled every first Monday during the months of February, May, August and November.
