The NYS Council is widely known for our ability to collect, synthesize and share information and analysis with our members. We provide accurate, time sensitive, high priority information to key member agency leaders on local, state, and federal issues impacting our field. We analyze state and federal budget proposals, decipher legislation and regulations, and advise our members on a host of policies and procedures impacting their businesses. We also offer our members a wide range of training and technical assistance opportunities based on the unique needs of mental health and substance use disorder/addiction organizations.
Value Added Deliverables
The NYS Council membership dues are reasonable and we can provide a significant one-time new member discount. To join the NYS Council as a full (voting) member your organization must operate programs and services for New Yorkers with mental health and/or substance abuse/chemical dependence and addiction issues.
We also offer affiliate memberships for individuals, organizations and businesses that want to support our association, attend our events and receive timely and accurate information from us. And as of February 2020, we have established a new category of membership for the BHCC/BH IPA networks we’ve been convening and supporting since October 2018.
