About the committees

The MHSUDAC and IDDAC are groups of members, families, and advocates. They meet to improve the lives of those with MH/SUD and IDD, respectively.
Both committees are in the North Carolina Triad region. These groups collaborate to:

  • Improve the public health system
  • Discuss ideas for new services
  • Provide member feedback

The committees offer grants to area non-profits that serve people with special health needs. Forsyth County provides funding for these groups.
