For more than 100 years, Mental Health America of Indiana has been the state's leading organization for mental health and addiction information and advocacy, as well as direct services to individuals in need. One of the things that makes us unique is our role in providing front-line support and advocacy at all stages, from birth through the entire lifespan of individuals affected by mental illness and addiction issues. On a weekly basis, we work with dozens of individuals in crisis or recovery or families looking for guidance, and we receive numerous calls from people around the state: teachers looking for help, therapists looking for training, or other providers and stakeholders who embrace our public health perspective, just to name a few. It is our mission to provide help and support to every one of these individuals or entities in need.
While we continue to make significant progress, there is so much more to be done—and so many Indiana residents are still struggling. We anticipate the need will only become greater and more acute as we navigate inevitable changes to the health care system and the subsequent impact on access to quality mental health care. As a result, we rely on the support of caring corporations and organizations to enable us to continue to transform lives, to change social perception, to craft public policy, and to battle stigma and discrimination.
