October 29, 2019

The Mental Health Alcohol and Drug Advisory Board (MHADAB) is seeking board members who are youth or adults with “lived experience” in the Mental Health or Substance Use system.   This consumer position is appointed by the Placer County Board of Supervisors and provides critical feedback to the Behavioral Health Directors (Amy Ellis and Twylla Abrahamson) to improve service delivery.  The board follows the Brown Act and takes formal votes on recommendations, behavioral health contracts, etc.  The board writes a summary of activities and recommendations to the Board of Supervisors annually.   


Board meetings are typically the 4th Monday of the Month from 6-8pm and alternate between Auburn and Roseville.  In addition, we ask board members to attend at least one other subcommittee meeting that is about one hour a month on a topic of interest to them.  We have 3 subcommittees currently: 1- Children Services, 2- Adult Services, and 3-Alcohol and Other Drug. 


For more information on becoming a MHADAB member, please contact Kyleene Headrick at or 530.889.7235.


We hope you consider joining our team and would love to hear your thoughts and ideas to improve Placer’s Behavioral Health system!
