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 quarterly meetings are held on the first Monday of the month, beginning with the second month of the year (February, May, August, November) at 9:30 am at:

Main Library
7711 Goodwood Blvd
Baton Rouge, LA
