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."
