Who We Are

The Health and Human Services (HHS) committee supports improvements in public health services and access to physical and mental health care for all Montgomery County residents.

What We Do

The committee developed public policy positions on health services, accessibility, prenatal care, health care for the homeless, mental health care and drug use issues. Recently, the committee studied substance use, abuse and treatment in Montgomery County and the opioid crisis. Committee members monitor issues related to health care in MC and MD.

What We’re Keeping an Eye On

To be determined as events and opportunities unfold. We monitor actions in the Montgomery County Council on COVID-19 policies and assistance for food, income relief and vaccines. We also monitor actions in the Maryland General Assembly on Health Care equity and insurance.
