Behavioral Heath Strategic Plan

In recent years, Mecklenburg County has identified behavioral health as a top priority for improving the wellbeing of residents. As part of this commitment, the County has invested significant funding to address gaps in behavioral health services not provided through federal, state or private resources.

Despite the expanded investments made by the County, and the realignment with Alliance Health as Mecklenburg’s Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organization (LME/MCO), the behavioral health infrastructure of the community remains fragmented and difficult to navigate.

During FY23, the County will work with Alliance Health and other community partners to develop a behavioral health strategic plan to inform the use of public funding to improve service access and care coordination.

Public Engagement

Mecklenburg County will be soliciting input from service providers, individuals with lived experience, and the community at-large by-way of community engagement meetings and presentations.

The purpose behind each engagement is to assess the behavioral health needs of the community to enhance the impact, coordination, and alignment of Mecklenburg County’s behavioral health services.

Below is an upcoming opportunity for community stakeholders to provide input and learn of the readily available behavioral Health related.
