The Queen Anne's County Mental Health Committee (QACMHC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to support those members of our community who need assistance coping with mental illness. The group was founded in 1986 by Lynette Nielson, who realized that local mental health programs needed access to additional funds to serve the needs of their patients.


Our board of volunteers endeavors to continue her vision.  Since that time, we have raised over $675,000 through our fundraisers, direct solicitations, and a small legacy, which allows us to provide grants to local organizations that provide mental health services to residents of Queen Anne's County.

QACMHC, P.O. Box 183, Queenstown, MD 21658.
