Member Advisory Board

Purpose of Member Advisory Board

The Member Advisory Board shares ideas and feedback with BHI’s Board of Directors. These are the goals of the Member Advisory Board:

  • Improve services
  • Connect members with the community
  • Encourage members to take ownership of their recovery
  • Promote empowerment

The ideas we get from the Member Advisory Board directly affect how we solve the problems that face our members.


Meeting Information

Member Advisory Board meetings are open to any member receiving behavioral health services. Family members are also welcome. Meetings are held every other month at the BHI office. During meetings, members share feedback and ideas with our Quality Improvement team to help solve problems our members face in getting the care they need.
