Coalition Efficiency: Uniting for Success

Often, community problems or issues (such as mental and behavioral health) are too large and complex for any one agency or organization to tackle. Putting together a coalition of schools, businesses, government, community organizations, or other affected groups can be an effective way to make an impact and achieve common goals.

How to Form a Coalition


We’re excited to partner with NACCHO to serve as the backbone for the Behavioral Health 360 program. For local public health officials, NACCHO is the premier source of learning, knowledge, and future-oriented research. It provides resources, education, ideas, and advocacy to enhance the voice and visibility of the critical role that local health departments play in keeping our communities healthy and safe.
