We are Oklahoma’s largest and MOST UNIFIED network of

mental health providers.

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

Coordinate Care

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.

The Work of the Alliance

Our Mission

Our mission is to advocate for better mental health and substance abuse treatment in Oklahoma. 

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. One of our most successful projects to date is the 988 mental health license plate

Member Support

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.

Training & Educational Opportunities

The Alliance organizes members-only opportunities designed to increase their knowledge of issues and strengthen their relationships with each other, policymakers, and elected officials. 

Public Awareness & Outreach

We work to increase public awareness of mental health and substance abuse issues facing Oklahomans as well as highlight the work 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 social networks; special events; publications, and campaigns.

Product & Service Development

The Alliance provides products and services to assist members with lobbying, advocacy, and public awareness. These products including annual legislative issues, policy advisory calls, legislative receptions, and meetings, etc.

Mental Health Advocacy

The Alliance is a mental health advocacy organization. We work to break stigma around mental illness and suicide as well as  normalize talking about mental health. 

Special Partnerships

The Alliance partners with state agencies and nonprofits on projects such as expanding brand awareness of mental health programs and services and establishing a 988 mental health license plate. An example of one of our partnerships is with LifeShare Oklahoma. Our members provide pro-bono services to donor families experiencing stress, anxiety, sorrow and other challenges following loss. We are so grateful to do this work.
