On March 12th, MHA staff participated in the Kansas Mental Health Coalition’s Mental Health Advocacy Day. The theme for the day, Speaking with One Voice to Meet the Critical Needs of People with Mental Illness, described perfectly the estimated 300 persons– a mix of mental health consumers, family members, providers and advocates who met at the Capitol. Participants learned about current mental health policy in Kansas and several individuals met with legislators to discuss community needs.
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.
