MHAM is Minnesota’s first mental health advocacy and education organization. Our mission is to enhance mental health, promote individual empowerment, and increase access to treatment and services for people with mental illnesses.
- We help individuals overcome barriers in their lives and maintain their rights.
- We inform policy makers to ensure parity in insurance coverage for mental health, protect patient rights, and increase funding for and access to community-based services.
- We provide community outreach to share the message that mental health is inseparable from overall health, mental disorders are treatable, and seeking and providing help is expected, responsible behavior.
