The application period is now open for MHA's upcoming Peer Specialist Training! Peer Support is a vital part of a person's recovery, and as a Peer Specialist, you will be equipped with tools to help others on their journeys. Beginning on March 13, 2017 and meeting twice per week for 14 weeks, the course prepares and supports students interested in pursuing the New York State's Peer Specialist Certification. An internship of 100 hours follows completion of the course. For more information or to apply, please contact Bob Litwak at (914) 345-5900, ext. 7105.
The Mental Health Association of Westchester is pleased to announce that the Northern Westchester Recovery Network has an expanded service area, and is now positioned to provide peer services throughout the entire county. The program has been renamed Westchester Recovery Network (WRN) to reflect its expanded geographical reach.
Michael Zahler – actor, singer and friend of MHA – shares his reaction to the news of Carrie Fisher’s passing with a piece that he wrote for an upcoming project. Zahler recently co-led a training for MHA staff on Transgender and Expansive Youth, and we are grateful for his heartfelt insight, commitment and voice.
Carrie Fisher has been on my mind since news of her heart attack. I admire her so much as someone who has fought long and hard for mental health awareness using her own experience.
Join us for MHA’s 53rd annual Operation Holiday Joy gift drive and spread cheer and kindness this winter!
Last year, with the help of friends like you, we delivered gifts to more than 350 men, women, children and teenagers we serve. For most, these are the only gifts they receive during the holidays.
Your gift is more than just a fun toy or a warm jacket - it is a message that says "I care about you, and you are a cherished member of our community."
