In recognition of Juneteenth, The Mental Health Association of Westchester will be closed on Monday, June 20th. Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, recognizes the end of slavery in the United States and specifically commemorates the events of June 19th, 1865 - the day the news of the Emancipation Proclamation reached Texas, freeing approximately 250,000 Black people who remained enslaved there.
With a few minutes of your time, you can help Westchester County address the significant mental health needs of our community.
Following the violent events of the past couple of weeks, we wanted to remind you that we are here to help. We have included links below for additional resources about taking care of yourself following incidents of mass violence, as well as resources for guiding your children through events such as these.

This Mental Health Month, we are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the 2022 Platinum Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health by Mental Health America. This distinction recognizes employers who strive to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees - one where employees feel valued and supported, where there is a safe workspace, and where everyone shows respect for other aspects of a person’s life. MHA is proud to be one of those workplaces.
