Kansas Health Foundation- This past spring, MHA was a recipient of a Kansas Health Foundation Recognition grant. The grant award, $25,000, will support the continued activities of the Boys2Men program. Boys2Men is a gender specific prevention program focusing on issues that are relevant to young men at higher risk for juvenile delinquency and truancy. Youth between the ages of 12-18 at risk for juvenile delinquency and truancy attend 12 – 15 prevention/intervention group sessions. These sessions include community service activities, access to job preparation and college exposure activities, connection with college preparation programs, referrals to mentoring organizations, and other services as needed.
The Mission of the Mental Health Association of South Central Kansas is to empower and assist youth, families and adults in our community to achieve optimal mental health and wellness through education, advocacy, and services.
MHA's Vision is achievement of a just, humane, and healthy community where all people are treated with respect and dignity, and where they have the opportunity to achieve their full potential, free from stigma and prejudice.
