About Us

The Pennsylvania Behavioral Health and Aging Coalition (PBHAC) was formed in 1999 as a statewide coalition of individuals and organizations concerned about the unmet mental health and substance abuse needs of older adults across the Commonwealth. As a coalition, regional groups representing Northeast, Northwest, Central, Southeast and Southwest Pennsylvania work together at local and statewide levels in order to collaboratively address the mental health/substance abuse needs of older adults.

 

Mission

Our mission is to promote wellness, enjoyment and engagement in life, including care, services and community support, that respect the behavioral health needs and values of older Pennsylvanians and their caregivers.


Vision

The coalition will be a powerful advocate on behalf of older adults with mental health and/or substance use disorders, and their caregivers, serving as the go-to source for information relating to their unique behavioral health needs, promoting wellness and recovery, and improving quality of life.
