Burleigh-Morton Behavioral Health Coalition

General BMBHC Logo - Green Blue

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. Members include representation from law enforcement, healthcare facilities, policymakers, schools, city/county officials, treatment providers, community organizations, community members and youth. 


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.
