ACMHAI Celebrates Turning 50!

Since 1972, ACMHAI has worked tirelessly to maintain its role as the voice of behavioral health authorities, communities and people facing mental health, substance use and intellectual and developmental challenges in Illinois. Over the past five decades, we have worked to preserve and protect the Illinois Community Mental Health Act and the Care and Treatment of Persons with Developmental Disabilities Act. For 50 years, ACMHAI has provided a forum for mental health authorities to share knowledge, advice, best practices, and lessons learned with one another. ACMHAI continues to grow and expand, providing a place for board members and their staff to learn, network, and thrive. Whether you’re a new, seasoned, or past member, you’re an important part of this anniversary, which is as much a celebration of ACMHAI’s past as it is an anticipation of our bright future!

Be a Part of ACMHAIs 50th Anniversary Celebration Help us commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the ACMHAI. In celebration of this monumental milestone, we are collecting memorable ACMHAI moments, words of advice, lessons learned, stories and/or best wishes from members (past and present) as well as ACMHAI friends and partners. The content from the videos and written messages will be used to create 50th anniversary video segments and a booklet to be presented at the December 2022 membership meeting, online for anniversary coverage and archived on the ACMHAI website for historical record.
