Calling Autism Advocates! Join the Parent Advisory Council for the East Missouri Autism Project!

The Missouri Autism Projects are looking for volunteers to serve on the Regional Parent Advisory Councils across the State. The Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) funds five Regional Autism Projects, which collectively provide autism services statewide. Each Autism Project has a Regional Parent Advisory Council (PAC) made up of parent volunteers or adults with autism. This network of family members and individuals with autism create a network of advocates working to influence policy and services for individuals with autism. PAC members offer advice, consultation, and recommendations to the Missouri Department of Mental Health regarding policy, budget, services, and service providers, among other things. PACs are open to Missouri residents with autism or family members of individuals with autism who meet DMH eligibility requirements.

If you are interested in serving in our region and want to make a difference in your local community please visit: dmh.mo.gov/dd/autism/parent-advisory-council.html or contact Kerri Tesreau, Director, Office of Autism Services, Division of Developmental Disabilities, Missouri Department of Mental Health by phone at 573-751-8213.
