National Council for Mental Wellbeing

We are excited to announce that on Wednesday, May 5, at NatCon21, we officially changed our name to the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, introducing a new era in our storied history.

The field of mental health and substance use treatment is constantly changing. And we are evolving with it to achieve greater inclusivity, reach more people in new ways and broaden our impact.

While our name has changed, our ambitions haven’t. We are committed to making mental wellbeing – including recovery from substance use – a reality for everyone, everywhere.

That means ensuring equitable access to high-quality services, building capacity for care delivery and promoting mental wellbeing as a core component of health and health care.

What Mental Wellbeing Means to Us

Mental wellbeing can have different meanings for different people. For us, it means thriving regardless of a mental health or a substance use challenge. It means giving everyone the opportunity to flourish.

Mental wellbeing promotes the importance of preventive care and increasing access to mental health and substance use treatment. It’s also a reflection of who we are and what we do.

More than a mission statement, mental wellbeing is a mindset we cultivated across 52 years of industry-advancing, policy-shaping, community-building work – one that will guide us for years to come.
