Our goal is to promote the understanding that good mental health is a critical part of overall wellness but poor mental health can lead to further psychological and physical ailments. To help reduce these negative outcomes, we must eliminate the stigma around mental illness, and break down barriers that prevent access to care.
MHAM became an affiliate of Mental Health America in 2020.
Mental Health America is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental wellbeing of all through advocacy, education, research and service.
MHA affiliates around the country are all working to this same end of eliminating stigma around mental illness and advocating locally, regionally and nationally for policies that promote access to care. As an affiliate, MHAM collaborates with the national office as well as other regional and national affiliates to access training and educational resources and technical support from the national office as well as receive mental health screening data for our region.
