LRMHA's vast experience in legislative lobbying and grassroots advocacy compounded with valuable relationships with state officials allows the collective voice of our members to be heard loud and clear. These relationships have helped present LRMHA as a resource to legislators and department staff, offering the breadth and depth which sets us apart from other organizations.
LRMHA understands the importance of data driven decisions and use of data in our advocacy efforts. As such, we frequently gather data from our members, analyze that data, and make use of that data in our advocacy efforts to government and policymakers.
While effectively representing the collective of our members, we work hard to assist our members individual entities. Whether your agency needs help with technical assistance, marketing, or facilitating a meeting with people in key positions, LRMHA is dedicated to ensuring our members success.
LRMHA consists of providers across the state that all share a goal of seeking to improve the mental health care system in Louisiana. Members are able to network with others in the mental health rehab field about emerging issues and share innovative practices and solutions to challenges.
Louisiana's mental health rehab providers have always competed for scarce resources and have often not been aware of key policy and regulatory opportunities. You have faced numerous challenges, especially over the past few years, all while providing quality services to the most vulnerable. At the same time, you have had few opportunities to meet, learn from each other, and collaborate on programs, health system reforms, planning, or policy and advocacy. LRMHA seeks to unite, support, and advocate for you all. We are harnessing the strength, creativity, and resiliency of our members to promote change.
