Mission

NAPHS advocates for behavioral health and represents provider systems that are committed to the delivery of responsive, accountable, and clinically effective prevention, treatment and care for children, adolescents, adults, and older adults with mental and substance use disorders.

 

The NAPHS vision is of a society that values and maximizes the potential of all its citizens by helping them to achieve overall health. To achieve healthy communities, behavioral health will be recognized, respected, and allocated resources with fairness and equity as part of overall health.

 

Association strategy and basic assumptions:

  • Behavioral health associations must be united in advocacy goals to successfully improve Americans' access to, coverage for, and outcomes in behavioral healthcare treatment.
  • Leaders must create a climate in which competing association efforts are coordinated, advocacy messages are strengthened, and services for clients/consumers are improved.
  • NAPHS must remain flexible so that it can work toward this vision.

 

GOAL: To establish NAPHS as the national advocacy association of choice for organizations providing behavioral health services.
