Addressing the needs of individuals living with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all Americans has been the focus of Mental Health America (MHA) since it was founded in 1909 – and the collaboration of change agents is needed now more than ever to help protect mental health initiatives. With potential threats to Medicaid, the national opioid epidemic, and proposed reduction of funding to SAMHSA, organizations of all sizes must continue to develop ways to connect resources. To assist in this effort, MHA has established an Associate Member Network to collaborate with other like-minded organizations.
