A sixteen member Area Board governs the Five County Mental Health Authority which serves Granville, Vance, Warren, Franklin and Halifax Counties. One County Commissioner from each county serves on the Board. In addition each County Board appoints three members to the board. The governing board is empowered by G.S. 122-116-122-121 to serve as a comprehensive planning, budgeting, implementing and monitoring group for community based mental health, developmental disabilities, and substance abuse programs. The locally adopted mission statement is “to serve all citizens and community partners collaboratively through a comprehensive mental health, developmental disability and substance abuse system of care which promotes health, safety, and well being.” The State has enacted significant changes to the mental health system. Granville County has elected to provide the services using the multi-county authority option. This will allow the County to meet the statutory requirements with as few organizational and operational changes as possible. One of the major impacts will be a requirement to shift from a mission that includes direct service provisions, to a local management entity, which is responsible for managing care provided by outside sources.
