What Makes MHAI Effective?

MHAI's successes have been possible because of what makes us unique as an organization. Here are some of the keys to our success.

Statewide Presence:

Our network of 40 affiliates provides a strategic local presence for our many advocacy and education efforts. These local Mental Health America affiliates are staffed by extensively trained professionals who are able to implement programs, build coalitions, generate media and deliver services.

Advocacy Leadership:

MHAI is a strong voice on the state and local levels for policies that expand opportunities for people with mental illness and addiction disorders. We are well positioned to regularly influence legislation and policy discussions that impact mental healthcare and addiction services.

Broad-Based Perspective:

MHAI represents a diverse network of mental health consumers, advocates, individuals in recovery, family members, providers and other stakeholders who embrace our public health perspective. Under this umbrella, we bring multiple communities together to promote the importance of mental health and addiction in all aspects of health and in all stages of life, from birth through old age.
