We have accepted a
bold, new charge.
The mission of the Alliance of Mental Health Providers of Oklahoma is to advocate for better mental health and substance abuse treatment in Oklahoma.
The Work of Our Members
Together, Alliance members have accepted a bold, new charge. In addition to providing mental health and substance abuse services for persons with serious mental illness, they are now coordinating whole-person integrated medical care to improve overall health outcomes for adults and youth.
Provide Immediate Access to Care
We believe individuals in a crisis need help when they need it. Providing immediate access to services and early crisis intervention is the first line of defense in preventing tragedies, saving lives, saving tax-payer dollars and community resources.
Provide Hope and Pathways to Self-Sufficiency
Alliance members help individuals access resources to achieve self-sufficiency and well-being, which are often hampered by low-income-related burdens.

Policy & Legislative Advocacy
We work to educate and inform local, state, and national lawmakers, traditional media, social influencers, and the public about the importance of the mental health system in Oklahoma. We advocate and lobby for better mental health and substance abuse treatment. We evaluate bills, policies, and ordinances, etc., and their potential impact on the state’s community-based mental health system. Ultimately, we strive to change public policy, laws, and even systems on behalf of Oklahoma’s most vulnerable citizens.
The Alliance reviews and tracks issues and proposed legislation that intersect with the organization’s mental health policy priorities. It nurtures an alliance among all members who are allied by a common cause, and then supports those members through advocacy, lobbying, public relations, public awareness, and outreach, etc.
Public Awareness & Outreach
We work to increase public awareness of Oklahoma’s community mental health providers and the critical role they play in transforming lives and communities through the various services they provide. We accomplish this through a variety of tools and products including special events, publications, and campaigns.
