MHAEC Is truly making a difference in Eastern Carolina. From advocacy work to peer navigation, to collaboration projects, to community education...they are standing in the gap for those dealing with mental illness and substance use and those that serve those who are facing mental health and substance concerns.

This organization has been instrumental in linking our patients with safe, effective case management services through their peer navigator program. In a time when not all patients have access to billable services, they genuinely try to put patients first and do what they can to improve their access to care and quality of life.
