A new name for a new era – MHA is now EveryMind.
EveryMind is not just a new name, it is the beginning of a new conversation. A conversation about the value and potential of every mind. Because every mind is important and needs attention, care, and support.
One in four people will deal with a mental health issue in their lifetime and that one person’s life impacts so many more – families, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to name just a few. We are committed to helping everyone recognize that taking care of one’s mental wellness is as important and necessary as taking care of one’s physical wellness. When one of us realizes optimal health, the whole community benefits.
For sixty years, our highly trained, caring, professional staff has provided community education, advocacy and direct services that empower children, teens, families, older adults and the whole community to reach optimal mental wellness. We were known as the Mental Health Association for most of that time, and while we have had a tremendous impact on the mental wellness of our community, we knew that there was more work to be done. We had to find a way to move past the stigma that gets in the way of wholeness and wellness.
Because if we want to live in a healthy community – we need to care for every mind.
