One IMHC goal is participation in local coalitions that promote mental health and substance use awareness and stigma reduction. Where needed, local "cluster" of mental health services providers, faith communities, advocates such as NAMI and MHA, and governmental entities are encouraged. These local geographic clusters promote the work of the IMHC with the customized needs of their community. If you are interested in participating in the work of a local geographic cluster in your area, see the list of clusters and contacts on the IMHC home page.
