Empower Idaho wants to change the conversation about behavioral health to one of compassion and understanding.

The EI team coordinates educational activities, both online and in-person, and advocates on behalf of adults with behavioral health conditions and their family members with the purpose of helping to improve the behavioral health delivery system of Idaho. We offer Behavioral Health Education Activities, Behavioral Health Awareness Campaigns, Advocacy, Resources, and Support, Information on Mental Health Parity and Rights, and Community Partnership Building.
