California Mental Health Planning Council
The California Mental Health Planning Council (CMHPC) is a majority Consumer and Family member advisory body to state and local government, the Legislature, and residents of California on mental health services in California. The vision and mission of the CMHPC guides its evaluation of California's system of mental health care through targeted committee studies, community site visits, and General Session forums and presentations. The CMHPC informs the Administration and the Legislature on priority issues through publications and reports, provides feedback on mental health policy and regulations, and on legislative actions based on its Policy Platform.
