Strengthening Resilience in our Community


In the spring of 2020, together with the entire world, we were forced to navigate one of the greatest crises of our time. 


In just a few short days, we were asked to make drastic changes in our lives in order to protect ourselves and our communities. Those changes also impacted our work. Click here to learn how we responded to the pandemic.

We are deeply proud of the way our staff navigated these adjustments. We are also inspired by the way individuals engaged in our services responded – for many, stepping outside their comfort zone to access care in an unfamiliar way.

We want to acknowledge all of the sacrifices and losses that people have experienced.  Many faced illness, death and financial strain.  Social supports, education as we knew it, sports and other activities, celebrations, coping mechanisms… all evaporated and were replaced by fear, uncertainty and isolation. We also saw racism, hate and unjust social systems more clearly than ever. All of this has meant a tremendous increase in the need for services across all parts of our community. Behavioral health has always been essential, but now our society recognizes its impact through a new lens. That is why we need your support now more than ever.


At MHA, we are healers, educators and advocates for those who have been victimized, stigmatized and disenfranchised.  And we will continue to do what we have done for 75 years: fight for basic human rights, including access to affordable, high quality behavioral health care. 


As we embark on our 75th year, we recognize you – our community – for showing us what it means to be resilient. Thank you for speaking out against stigma, for journeying these unfamiliar roads with us, and for supporting us.

Things we learned


Clinicians showed up on TeleHealth platforms to deliver the same warm, person-centered care. Peer specialists increased their connections, expanding their 24/7 help line to the larger community of individuals engaged in MHA services. Doctors and nurses continued to meet with clients in person. Our IT and Facilities teams went into overdrive, equipping staff with technology and PPE vital to making all of this possible.
