A national association of innovative & entrepreneurial
behavioral healthcare organizations
focused on the development of C-suite executives.

Prospective Members

Thank you for your interest in mhca!

It can be lonely at the top, but it doesn’t have to be. At mhca, members find camaraderie and professional support to help them address emerging issues and achieve their entrepreneurial goals.

Our focus at mhca is on developing behavioral healthcare leaders. The diverse cultural, educational and professional experiences of our members and their broad scope of knowledge create an optimal environment for learning, collaboration, and unparalleled growth and development.

Most of our members are also members of their state associations and National Council, but they have found that membership in mhca provides them with the CEO and C-suite specific focus and the deep connections and thought-provoking conversations they can’t find anywhere else.

Members benefit from quarterly conferences, association publications, Listserv conversations, CEO compensation survey, peer group involvement and other resources that help them examine healthcare trends, learn about developing finance and service delivery models, explore operational challenges, discuss innovative human resource strategies and more.


Eligibility Criteria

We believe you become like those with whom you choose to associate yourself, and we intend to associate ourselves with only the most reputable and progressive behavioral healthcare organizations in the country, which is why membership is by invitation only.

To be eligible for membership, organizations must:

  • Provide some amount of direct behavioral healthcare service – unless a majority owned subsidiary of an existing member.

  • Be appropriately licensed/accredited.

  • Demonstrate innovative practices, entrepreneurial spirit and leadership consistent with the vision and strategic goals of mhca.

  • Be endorsed by an existing member, trusted vendor, or mhca staff member.
