Our mission is to promote mental health and eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness through advocacy, education, research, and service for the residents of Central Virginia.
We believe early detection of mental illness is critical and so is treating mental illness like a physical illness. It is just as important as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. We cannot wait years to treat mental illness, which has inspired us to start our B4Stage4 Campaign.
We are proud to be part of state and national associations with over a century of advocacy, public education, and the delivery of programs and services, Mental Health America is the country's leading nonprofit dedicated to helping all people live mentally healthier lives.
Mental Health America (formerly known as the National Mental Health Association) is the country’s leading nonprofit dedicated to helping ALL people live mentally healthier lives. With our more than 320 affiliates nationwide, we represent a growing movement of Americans who promote mental wellness for the health and well-being of the nation – everyday and in times of crisis.
