A Local Mental Health Advisory Council (LAC) offers individuals, parents, families, community service providers and community members the opportunity to make a real difference in how mental health care is provided in their community. LACs allow people to share their first-hand experiences with mental health challenges with county and state policymakers for the purpose of improving mental health care in their communities.
Every county in Minnesota is required to have a LAC. A county may have both an adult and a children’s mental health LAC, or they may be combined.
