Behavioral Health Advisory Committee (BHAC)

The RGB appoints a Behavioral Health Advisory Committee (BHAC), comprised of 15-20 members, responsible for advising the Board on behavioral health issues and funding allocations. Consideration for membership is given to geographic location, direct and indirect consumers, cultural diversification, and the community at large.
