A strategic partnership of caring organizations striving to improve the quality of life in Kane County.

In January of 2007, the county’s mental health service providers partnered to create the Kane County Mental Health Council. This alliance is dedicated to improving mental health services for children, adults and families in their communities. The alliance formed in response to community demand, and to the findings of the Kane County Health Department’s IPLAN (Illinois’ Project for Local Assessment of Needs).

The independent Council formed to coordinate services and to make the system more responsive by bringing together provider organizations, mental health authorities, major funders of mental health services, mental health advocacy groups and public officials.
