The Burleigh-Morton Behavioral Health Coalition, also known as the Gold Star Community Task Force, was formed in June 2017 as a collaborative effort between the Bismarck-Mandan-Lincoln communities in response to behavioral health and substance abuse issues in the community. The name of the task force was changed to the Burleigh-Morton Behavioral Health Coalition in 2019.
The task force consists of a diverse group of caring and committed individuals who have a vision to create change and make an impact on the current substance abuse and behavioral health issues affecting the local population.
A safe, healthy, vibrant, and caring community, free of substance abuse, addiction, and behavioral health issues.
To lead and guide a continuum of care model to reduce substance abuse and behavioral health issues in our communities.
