Threshold Services The mission of Threshold Services is to help people with mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders to recover by providing treatment, rehabilitation and housing, and by promoting a caring community through advocacy and education.  
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Because people with mental and substance use disorders, because of their illness, have largely been excluded from the current health care system and rely on public "safety net" programs, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities. In order to achieve this mission, SAMHSA has identified 8 Strategic Initiatives to focus the Agency's work on improving lives and capitalizing on emerging opportunities: Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness, Trauma and Justice, Military Families, Recovery Support, Health Reform, Health Information Technology, "Data, Outcomes, and Quality," & Public Awareness and Support. 
Plan of Maryland-DC, Inc. PLAN is a non-profit organization and its Board of Directors is made up largely of people knowledgeable about mental illness through long experience or professional concern. Board members and other volunteers serve without pay to develop PLAN's policies and programs and manage its finances. Case management is carried out by a paid staff of master's degree level licensed clinical case managers under the guidance of a licensed Executive Director. 
National Institute of Mental Health NIMH envisions a world in which mental illnesses are prevented and cured. The mission of NIMH is to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses through basic and clinical research, paving the way for prevention, recovery, and cure. It must foster innovative thinking and ensure that a full array of novel scientific perspectives are used to further discovery in the evolving science of brain, behavior, and experience. In this way, breakthroughs in science can become breakthroughs for all people with mental illnesses. The NIMH site is a well-organized and comprehensive resource for information on mental illnesses. In addition to news releases, a list of current clinical trials, and intramural research reports, the site offers separate sections for the public, health practitioners, and researchers.
