APPLICATIONS ACCEPTED for Mental Health Planning Council OMHSAS Advisory Board

The OMHSAS (Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services) MH Planning Council will be accepting applications for their Children’s, Adult, Older Adult, and Transition Age Committees.


They meet 4 times a year in Harrisburg (they are looking into moving it around the state possibly). It’s a great opportunity to make a difference at the state level.
