Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Mental Health, Mental Health Treatment

Mission: The mental health association promotes lasting mental wellness through a spectrum of culturally competent programs and services. We help people find the tools and resources that they need to achieve and maintain mental wellness. For over 70 years, we have promoted mental wellness in our community through educational programming, referral to needed services and individualized support and assistance to those in greater need. All of our programs focus on increasing each persons ability to take care of him/herself as they move back and forth along the continuum of mental wellness. We want people to leave the mental health association knowing how to recognize when they need help and the know-how to follow the steps to get it. (per mha website)

For many years, the MHA provided me and many others with excellent opportunities to improve my art, social, and workplace skills. Their support has helped me work my way up to writing four hours a day.
