Who We Are

Mental Health America of Arizona (MHA AZ), serving Arizona since 1954, is here to educate our community and advocate for all those individuals and families impacted by mental illness. Our vision is a mentally healthy Arizona free from stigma and treatment disparities. Our work is driven by our commitment to promote mental health as a critical part of overall wellness.

MHA AZ promotes the mental health and well-being for all Arizonans through education, advocacy and the shaping of public policy. We do so by developing, empowering, informing and activating a network of people, healthcare providers and business alliances interested in advocating for sound public mental health policy in Arizona. We utilize media and social networking to unite our network and call for action on pressing issues. We assist individuals by connecting them to resources in their local community.

MHA AZ is reducing the stigma associated with mental illness by helping people learn about all facets of mental health. Our educational efforts include informing and guiding public officials and elected representatives on mental health issues, as well as publishing up–to–date information about mental health issues and topics impacting our local and statewide communities. We host an annual conference and other educational events throughout the year.

We are a voice for the people of Arizona, along with their families, who are and could be impacted by mental illness.
