Mental Health & Addiction Advocacy Coalition (MHAC)
The Mental Health and Addiction Advocacy Coalition (MHAC) fosters education and awareness of mental health and addiction issues while advocating for public policies and strategies that support effective, well-funded services, systems, and supports for those in need, resulting in stronger Ohio communities. MHAC works with seniors at the local and state level focuses how policy can impact older persons. They participate in initiatives that address the needs of older adults.
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed how MHAC operates, turning the focus within organizations and the impact on how it serves clients. MHAC created training videos that are available nationwide to help anyone understand the unique behavioral needs of older adults provided for a modest fee. MHAC strives to educate the public and spread awareness of behavioral mental health issues that many people face.
