Maryland Coalition of Families


State Policies & Initiatives: 
~~" Founded by a coalition of family support organizations, MCF was incorporated in 1999 as a nonprofit organization. MCF changed its name from "Maryland Coalition of Families for Children’s Mental Health" to the "Maryland Coalition of Families" in 2016. MCF is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of at least 51% adult caregivers of a child or adolescent with a diagnosable emotional or behavioral disability. All of our family support staff are parents who have cared for a loved one with behavioral health needs and have been trained to help other families. “
