Maryland Coalition of Families for Children’s Mental Health

Maryland

"Incorporated in 1999 as a private, nonprofit organization, MCF is Maryland’s statewide family network organization, a designation from the federal Substance Use and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). 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 child with behavioral health needs and have been trained to help other families."
