Mission Statement

Promoting Mental Health • Instilling Hope • Improving Quality of Life

The mission of the Mental Health Association (MHA) of Genesee and Orleans Counties is to promote mental wellness, instill hope and improve quality of life through peer support, advocacy, and education. We offer peer-driven supports that promote mental wellness and teach the skills needed for healthy living.  Our strength is a caring and experienced team dedicated to person-centered planning. We advocate for self-determination and community integration as alternatives to facility-based service.
