Turn Hope Into Help

Our work has resulted in positive change. We have educated millions about mental health conditions and reduced barriers to treatment and services. As a result of Mental Health America's efforts, many Americans with mental health conditions have sought care and now enjoy fulfilling, productive lives in their communities. Help us continue our mission towards prevention services for all, early identification and intervention for those at risk, integrated care, services, and supports for those who need it, with recovery as the goal.
