The mission of The Mental Health Association of Westchester (MHA) is to promote mental health through advocacy, community education and direct services.
MHA facilitates recovery by providing services that reflect our deeply held values that include the recognition of individual rights of self-determination, choice, shared decision-making and collaborative work. Our highly trained staff utilize evidence-based practices throughout our comprehensive array of trauma-informed and recovery-oriented services.
Through our robust services, as well as our advocacy programs and community events, MHA is able to meet the needs of thousands of men, women, children and families each year, helping them live independent lives in the community.
Nearly 150 years of combined history and shared commitment to person-centered, integrated behavioral health care services
At MHA, we know that peer support can be an invaluable tool for recovery. Through our Peer Specialist Training program, we offer a path toward employment for people with lived experience of mental health conditions.
Getting help is easier than ever thanks to 988, a new three-digit dialing code that routes callers to the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, formerly known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
