We are determined to ensure health equity with adequate resources to support quality services for all Montana citizens.

We believe inclusiveness of all expands access to services.

We believe that our integrity requires transparency and stewardship of resources.

We are performance driven with an over-arching goal of ensuring the dignity and well-being of the people we serve

We believe that as a strong Alliance, we can have the greatest impact.

The Alliance Provides

Advocacy – lead and coordinate public policy direction related to behavioral health services

Communication – provide timely information so that members will be informed of changes in policy, policy direction, and new opportunities for business as well as be a repository for clinical, business, and other best practices

Coordination – coordinate with other stakeholders in healthcare on advocacy and service delivery (primary care, criminal justice, law enforcement, child welfare, prevention)

Networking Opportunities – provide opportunities for alliance members to connect with each other and other stakeholders, share valuable tools and practices, and build a voice for mental health and addiction services
