As a member of this exclusive association of entrepreneurial behavioral health organizations, you have access to a variety of invaluable resources and benefits to help you and your organization excel in a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
If you’re like most mhca members, the number one reason you joined was to develop valuable connections with trustworthy peers. Our deliberately small membership and frequent engagement opportunities make mhca uniquely suited to this goal. Here are a few resources to help you get plugged in and stay connected over time.
Yes, the sessions are great – mhca conferences feature nationally-recognized speakers and peer presenters who provide insights on emerging issues and industry trends; but, the most valuable learning opportunities are often the result of informal hallway conversations. Before you head to our next conference, spend a few minutes looking over the Member Directory (link) and Conference Registration List (link), think about what you want to learn from others, and jot down a few questions.

mhca follows members online, and we tweet, like and share relevant information nearly every day. A quick post or reply on Twitter (link), Facebook (link) or LinkedIn (Link) is an easy way to reach out, share interesting articles, offer a compliment, or ask a question. Social media can be a great starting point, especially for introverts; but to create a meaningful connection, you’ll eventually need to meet in person. Before heading to a conference, think about which online contacts you’d like to know better and invite them meet up for a cup of coffee.
