The Region Three Advisory Council represents six counties in the region. Members are appointed by their county commissioners; they are business and civic leaders with a strong interest in mental health, developmental disabilities and addictive diseases as well as consumers or family members of consumers.

The role of the Advisory Council is to promote public awareness of mental health, developmental disabilities, and addictive diseases disorders, and to help the public better understand consumers and their needs and services. Council members stay informed about local needs and issues and serve as advocates with public officials. The main objective of the council is to assist the department in fulfilling its vision of "easy access to high-quality care that leads to a life of recovery and independence for the people we serve."

Each regional advisory council shall engage in disability services planning within its region and may perform such other functions as may be provided or authorized by law, such as:

  1. Informing the department of local needs and priorities;
  2. Organizing natural supports;
  3. Recommending community improvements;
  4. Providing input to the department regarding the local perspective of consumers, families, and community stakeholders; and
  5. Encouraging prevention programs.
