Since 1913, the Massachusetts Association for Mental Health (MAMH) has worked to improve understanding of mental health conditions and combat disparities in health services access. We envision a day when all individuals and families across the Commonwealth have the resources and opportunities they need to promote resilience and protect overall health.
In 2016, MAMH’s Board of Directors developed a thoughtful and comprehensive five-year strategic plan. Building on our history as a policy leader and change agent, the Board has set forth an ambitious agenda to advance mental health and well being by promoting prevention, early intervention, effective treatment, and recovery. While much has changed since 1913, gaps in knowledge and disparities in access persist. MAMH remains grounded in the conviction that all people with mental health challenges be treated with dignity and respect, and have access to the services and supports they need to lead productive lives in the community. We will continue to fight until all people in Massachusetts have access to the opportunities they need to protect their natural resilience and overall health.
