Center for Research and Innovation

MHA’s Center for Research and Innovation is supporting individuals and communities through the voices of those who are impacted to create solutions that work. Our programs work with data from over 1 million users each year to understand community and workplace trends on mental illness, trauma, disparity, and access to supports.

MHA Screening

MHA Screening provides tools for people to understand and make decisions about their own mental health. The voluntary data from users helps to identify data-driven population health efforts toward prevention and early intervention of mental illness, promotion of mental wellbeing, and equitable allocation of mental health treatment and supports.

Screening-to-Supports (S2S)

MHA's Screening to Supports (S2S) is an interactive online space for individuals to find tools they can use after screening to better their mental health. S2S provides customized results, drawing from resources in each of four domains identified by screeners: information and resources (“Learn”); information about and referrals to care, services, and supports (“Treatment and Help”); do-it-yourself tools (“DIY”); and online engagement with peers (“Connect”).
