Mental Health America of Wabash County works for the mental health of everyone through public education, advocacy, referral, and public health reform. We are an affiliate of Mental Health America of Indiana and of National Mental Health America, the nation’s leading nonprofit dedicated to helping ALL people live mentally healthier lives.
MHA of Wabash County helps people to understand and not fear people with mental illnesses. This fear and distrust is called stigma. Stigma keeps some people from getting treatment, and lack of steady employment or lack of health insurance for mental health issues can be a stumbling block to treatment. Legal issues can complicate treatment of mental diseases.
You may have a family member or friend who deals with mental disease on a daily basis.
Mental diseases, like diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure, are diagnosable and treatable, and with your help, we can spread the message that there is hope for people with mental illnesses, that everyone needs to learn how to maintain good mental health and to recognize the signs of a mental disease.
