Our Mission

The mission of the Illinois Association for Behavioral Health (IABH) is to advocate for sound public policies in the behavioral health field on behalf of clinicians, consumers, youth, family members, and individuals in recovery who are in need of services.  

We Envision

  • Communities actively participate in prevention and health promotion
  • Laws, public policies, and culture enhance everyone's well-being

We Educate
