WHO WE ARE

Mission

The Mission of the Anne Arundel County Mental Health Agency is to provide leadership and collaboration for planning, monitoring, and managing of a comprehensive, quality, person-centered, Behavioral Health continuum of care for Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders that promotes prevention, recovery, resiliency, health and wellness for our residents who have, or who are at risk, for these behavioral health disorders.

Vision

The AACMHA envisions and works to create and continuously improve a Public Behavioral Health System that is flexible, responsive, and meets the needs of the people it serves. This system will have a single point of entry, a single point of decision-making, and the ability to access appropriate services from any point in any system, which are crucial to responsive, individualized, and coordinated care, focused on wellness and recovery.

 

Values

The AACMHA believes that residents with behavioral health problems have the right and the duty to:

  • Receive culturally sensitive and diverse services;

  • Choose from an array of services, providers and locations;

  • Live in the least restrictive environment feasible;

  • Retain the fullest possible control over their lives;

  • Be treated fairly and equitably;

  • Be free of discrimination that may be caused by their disability;

  • Be fully involved in decision-making regarding their care;

  • Be responsible for following the agreed to treatment plan;

  • Provide input to the Behavioral Health System throughout the planning process; and,

  • Provide input to the Behavioral Health System regarding outcomes and satisfaction.
