Mental Health America of Greater Houston

Wellnicity Contributor

Mental Health America of Greater Houston (MHA) was founded in 1954 by Houston philanthropist, Miss Ima Hogg. For nearly 60 years, MHA Houston has worked to ensure that our community makes mental health a priority.
 
As the area’s oldest mental health advocacy and education organization, we actively work to replace misperceptions and misunderstanding about mental illness with compassion and proper treatment; link people to mental health services; provide education and training for key sectors of the community; remove barriers to mental health care by facilitating change in systems and advocate for legislative solutions that address the vast unmet need for public mental health services.

OUR MISSION

MHA Houston’s mission is to enhance the mental health of all Houstonians and improve the lives of those with mental illnesses. We accomplish this through collaborative education, outreach and advocacy.
