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.
We are Arizona’s oldest organization dedicated to all aspects of mental health, mental illness and behavioral health disorders.
Our mission is to promote 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.
MHA AZ is an affiliate of the nation’s leading community-based non-profit, Mental Health America,
founded in 1909 by Clifford Beers and is dedicated to helping all Americans achieve wellness by living mentally healthier lives.
Our vision is a mentally healthy Arizona free from stigma and treatment disparities.
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 providers on mental health issues, and publishing up–to–date information about issues and topics impacting our community. We host an annual conference and other educational events throughout the year.
