Partner Spotlight: Mental Health America

United Way currently invests in their: Community Service/Advocacy, Education & Individual Assistance

Good mental health is fundamental to the overall health and well-being of every person. It is what creates satisfaction in life, the ability to maintain good relationships with others, as well as productivity in school and the workplace.

While healthy lifestyles and healthy environments contribute greatly to good mental health, mental disorders will affect 1 in 4 Americans each year. In fact, mental illnesses are more common than cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. The good news? Mental illness can be effectively treated. MHA believes in educating the public to help break the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
