Becoming a member of the National Council puts you in excellent company and signals your interest in being counted among the most involved and forward-thinking behavioral healthcare organizations in the country. Our members are leaders in their communities and within the broad healthcare community.

If you seek to heighten your organization’s presence, expand its influence, improve its operations, and reach out in new and innovative ways, membership in the National Council is a must. Membership in the National Council gives all staff and board members of your organization access to a comprehensive array of member benefits.


The National Council encourages membership from:

  • Organizations that deliver mental health and addiction treatment and support services to adults, children, and families — behavioral health organizations, community mental health centers, community health centers, consumer run programs, residential providers, child welfare agencies, club houses, rehabilitation programs, etc.
  • Hospitals that provide mental health and/or addiction treatment.
  • County behavioral health departments and regional boards.
  • Managed care organizations that allocate resources, oversee services, and/or directly provide services.
  • Local associations of health and human services organizations.

The National Council has a network of state associations whose members are also National Council members (100% state association membership), that serve the interests of community behavioral healthcare treatment organizations in their states. In addition, there are a growing number of state departments of mental health and/or substance use treatment services that have joined the National Council as state members.

Our association members are able to take advantage of exclusive opportunities to engage with other National Council leaders at twice yearly meetings of our board of directors and association executives, as well as at our annual conference, and through a members-only association online community. Association Executives are part of and provide input to the National Council’s Public Policy Committee.

There are significant differences between the benefits available to 100% association members vs. those available to non-100% members, including Board representation.


We are committed to ensuring that your organization sees a significant return on investment for your National Council membership. The National Council membership year runs from October 1 to September 30 and membership applications are accepted throughout the year with prorated dues.
