The Anne Arundel County Mental Health Agency (AACMHA) is dedicated to ensuring that low-income, non-insured residents with mental health problems can:

  • Live in the least restrictive environment feasible.
  • Retain the fullest possible control over their lives.
  • Be treated fairly and equitably.
  • Be free of discrimination based on their disability.

In keeping with these values, the AACMHA is committed to developing a public mental health system in the county that is flexible and responsive to the needs of the people it serves.

AACMHA believes that the system should meet the needs of the client.

AACMHA believes that the mental health system should facilitate the consumer's efforts to address any issues that impact on their mental health. AACMHA strives to involve the people served and their families to the fullest extent possible in decision-making regarding services that are provided.

AACMHA believes that consumers in partnership with their therapy team should have the right to choose the type and quantity of services they receive and that they should be free to choose how those services are delivered.

AACMHA believes that services should be provided in as least restrictive a setting as possible.

AACMHA believes that there should be one guiding set of principles, a single point of entry, and a single point of decision-making to improve coordination of care and the responsiveness of the system to the people being served.
