Organizational Sketch

The New York State Conference of Local Mental Hygiene Directors (NYSCLMHD) specializes in advocacy for the mentally ill, the developmentally disabled, and/or people with chemical dependencies. The Conference also extends outreach efforts to the families of those they serve. Its efforts focus on ensuring that people with various mental health needs have quality, affordable care, guiding formation of local and state policies to make sure that they are as current and relevant as possible. [1]

The NYSCLMHD was formed in 1976 under Article 41 of the state Mental Hygiene Law, which covers local and unified services. Article 41 was “designed to enable and encourage local governments to develop in the community preventive, rehabilitative, and treatment services offering continuity of care” and stresses the need for cooperation among local, county, and state governments in order to provide the best level of mental healthcare. [2] As such, the Conference— operating at the county level—serves as a link between statewide and local services, confirming that policies are carried out efficiently in the realms of clinical and rehabilitative work. The Conference opened its Albany, New York headquarters in 1978, and as an affiliate of the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC), it was originally located in the NYSAC building on State Street. [3] The Conference continues to be affiliated with NYSAC but has since moved to a different building in downtown Albany.

The NYSCLMHD, which is a not-for-profit organization, oversees a complex and extensive network of professionals, requiring participation by mental health directors and commissioners from New York State’s 57 counties and New York City*. [4] These are the people who are already coordinating mental health care services in their own counties and therefore have the knowledge and background to correlate services between local, county, and state agencies. Over the years they have worked closely with the New York State Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, Office of Mental Health, Division of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse, and Division of Substance Abuse as they analyze the state’s mental healthcare system and make recommendations for improvement. Daily operations are overseen by the Conference’s executive director, who in turn reports to the executive committee and chairperson. The executive committee, which meets monthly, is made up of past and present committee chairpersons, current officers, and regional representatives. All members meet twice a year at conferences, and officers are elected for two-year terms, as per the Conference’s bylaws. [5]

The Conference has devoted itself to a vast number of projects since its inception in the mid-1970s. A sample of its work includes children’s mental welfare, adult housing needs, affordable services, and care of the mentally ill during and after prison sentences. Over the years, members have both sponsored and attended many workshops and conferences designed to enhance the skills of those working on behalf of the mentally ill, chemically dependent, and developmentally disabled. It also continues to focus effort on bringing greater understanding of mental health issues to the general public as well as to key professions, such as law enforcement and education, so that people with special needs can be more efficiently integrated into everyday life.

*New York State officially has 62 counties; New York City’s five boroughs are each considered to be a separate county. (See www.nysegov.com)

Scope and Content Information

The records of the New York State Conference of Local Mental Hygiene Directors (NYSCLMHD) contain meeting minutes, correspondence, reports, and newsletters documenting the founding and day-to-day activities of the group, including original by-laws and articles of incorporation. There are also records of many of the NYSCLMHD’s specific projects from the late 1970s through the early 2000s, such as managed care/Medicaid/special needs plans, grant applications, juvenile care issues, housing concerns, partnerships with other organizations, disaster preparedness, and care of mental needs patients in prison.

Researchers will also find some materials on the history of mental health care in the state of New York. In addition, there are documents pertaining to mental health professionals’ increased efforts to partner with law enforcement to achieve better understanding of those living with mental illness, developmental disabilities, or the effects of substance abuse.

In most instances, folder titles have been retained according to the record-keeping habits of the NYSCLMHD.

Container List

Series 1: Administrative Files, 1950-2005, Undated 1.6 cubic ft.
Arranged alphabetically
The administrative files contain executive meeting minutes from the Conference’s earliest days through the late 1980s. During those years, members kept the minutes in large, hardcover binders; the archivist removed the papers from those binders for preservation purposes and placed them in acid-free folders in the order in which they appeared in the original binders. In the 1990s, Conference members began filing their meeting minutes under the heading of “chronological files” along with meeting announcements and correspondence. The chronological files became series two of this collection and researchers will find more meeting minutes there. However, there is a gap in the Conference's meeting minutes from 1989-1994.
This series also contains founding documents such as original charters and by-laws as well as files pertaining to activities of the executive director. Please note that there are several executive committee meeting files in Series #5: Projects and Committees.

The name of this series comes right from the Conference’s own record-keeping system. In the 1990s it stopped storing meeting minutes separately in oversized binders and began interfiling them with correspondence, meeting announcements, memorandums, and treasurer’s reports in folders labeled with the current month and year. Minutes include regularly scheduled events, such as executive committee meetings, as well as ad hoc meetings. Memos include those sent by the NYSCLMHD as well as those received by the Conference from outside sources such the New York State Office of Mental Health and the Division of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse.

Series 6: Managed Care and Special Needs Plans, 1991-2000, Undated 2.0 cu. ft.
Arranged alphabetically.
Managed care, in its most general form, refers to coordination of health services in such a way that quality care is provided, but costs are kept low. Many of the records in this series deal with Medicare issues, of which special needs plans (SNPs) are an important part since they focus effort on particular groups of people with very specific needs. Researchers will find a variety of records such as memos, letters, information packets, and meeting notes covering areas like Medicare financing, managed care in rural areas, strategic planning, technical assistance, and committee work.
