Our Vision...
MHA

  1. We will hold ourselves accountable to our consumers, community and employees, by our commitments, providing services and striving for the highest quality.

  3. MHA is committed to working together to eliminate the stigma attached to mental illness through empathetic programs and education.

  4. MHA will provide all people suffering from mental health symptoms and/or addictions the opportunity for recovery without prejudice and discrimination.
