The fact that the national conference on Mental Heath was held in Tulsa rather than Washington DC this most recent year is a recognition on what informational work is being done by this organization. Their leadership, approach and overall impact is amazing.

I have worked with MHA Tulsa for the past 8 years and I am amazed at the impact they have on those dealing with Mental Illness in the Tulsa community. Their housing initiatives for the homeless, those dealing with Mental Illness and others in the Tulsa area is a top model for the entire country and is often talked about in many other venues. I have always found the staff and leadership at MHA Tulsa to be cooperative, professional and always ready to talk about partnerships that will benefit Tulsa and the populations they serve. A truly exceptional non-profit!

I am a beneficiary of the Mental Health Association in Tulsa in many ways. I have been housed and counselled and employed by the agency. Our relationship goes back 18 years. I have never encountered an environment that is so eager to help and at the same time so respectful of individual boundaries. The agency has housed me when I was homeless and respected me when I needed respect. The agency is constantly growing and improving, never becoming complacent.

I have worked for many non-profit organizations, and MHAT is by far the best. I also worked as a public school teacher for 12 years. Working at MHAT has been the best work experience in my life. As a former drug abuser and mentally disturbed person, they let me use my life experience to help others and, I have not only grown as a result of working here but have also been given an opportunity to use the gifts I have developed as a result of my teaching experience. I am truly grateful for the chance to start over in a worthwhile profession that helps people, and I am not the only person who has been given this chance. Many who have a history of mental illness/substance abuse have been given employment which has literally saved their lives.

Tulsa Mental Health Association reaches approximately 650 individuals and families affected my mental illness by providing housing, six-support and peer-support groups, adolescent programs, and education to the community about mental illness. In addition to providing these life changing programs, the staff of the mental health work tirelessly to not only offer programs, but more importantly, offer compassion and dignity to those who are affected by this illness. Thank You for your Consideration. Isaac Rocha; Board of Directors, The Bama Companies, Inc.

The Mental Health Association in Tulsa is a nationally recognized, award winning organization making huge strides in providing over 650 units of safe, affordable, and decent housing for people living with mental illness with the goal of ending chronic homelessness in Tulsa. Last month the Association hosted the 2012 National Zarrow Mental Health Symposium and Mental Health America Annual Conference attracting speakers from 20 states and attendees from 35 states and 3 countries. The subject was "from housing to recovery". Executive Director, Michael Brose, his staff, board members and volunteers are unparalleled. As a volunteer for over 18 years, I've witnessed tremendous growth in housing, wrap around services, education, public policy, advocacy, outreach and employment assistance to name a few. The Mental Health Association is changing people's lives, including mine. I find it a privileged to be given the opportunity to work with such talented, dedicated people who are making a difference in this world.

I am impressed every time I see the facilities this organization along with Building Tulsa Building Lives is able to provide the community. The goal is to end chronic homelessness in Tulsa and I think with the passions shown thus far it will be accomplished very soon.

The Mental Health Association in Tulsa is a national leader when it comes to the development and operation of Permanent Supportive Housing. Their no-debt model of development allows tenants to live in housing units that are high-quality AND affordable. MHATulsa is a community leader, working collaboratively to improve the lives of people with mental illness in Tulsa and in Oklahoma. Excellent organization!!

Not enough can be said about the warm, genuine, and hard-working nature of this non-profit, including its staff and volunteers. I joined the Mental Health Association in Tulsa as a volunteer board intern and was immediately impressed by the spirit of its people. From its goodhearted and down-to-earth Executive Director, Mike Brose, to the selfless staff that is its backbone, everyone goes above and beyond what is necessary to serve the Tulsa community. I am proud to be part of an organization that has made a significant contribution to ending homelessness in our city. In assisting the mentally ill, the Mental Health Association in Tulsa has provided not only the basic necessities of everyday life such as housing and support, but a sense of dignity and worth which is invaluable. They have become a family to me and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with this non-profit!
