The Foundation provides fiscal analysis of MHAI legislative initiatives.  Understanding that policymakers look for policy initiatives that make fiscal sense for taxpayers of the state of Indiana, the Foundation provides financial information that illustrates why it makes sense to provide quality mental healthcare.

Whitepapers authored by the Foundation have been lauded nationally and used by other states to implement public policy initiatives.  Among the many initiatives the Foundation has been involved in, the Foundation has been instrumental in the passage of mental health reform, mental health parity, substance abuse parity and access to medication.
