What is MHA?
Mental Health America (formerly known as the National Mental Health Association) is the country’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people live mentally healthier lives. With our more than 320 affiliates nationwide, MHA represents a growing movement of Americans who promote mental wellness for the health and well-being of the nation.
Mental Health America of Jackson County is an agency funded by United Way of Jackson County and one of 60 local chapters in Indiana. MHAJC is affiliated with National Mental Health America and Mental Health America of Indiana. MHAJC is concerned with all aspects of mental health and mental illness. Our goal is to increase public understanding and acceptance of persons with mental illness.
The board of MHAJC consists of 10-15 volunteer members of our community. Each one brings to the board a unique and diverse collection of talents and life experiences. All are dedicated to our mission to educate the public and to help improve lives of those with mental illness.
Each board member serves for a three year period and donates an average of 2-4 hours a month. Board meetings are held the second Monday of each month at 4 PM at the Community Agency Building (CAB) in Seymour. There are no board meetings held in June, July or December.
We take this opportunity to acknowledge our board members as their vision and willingness to serve has been reflected in the growth of services and individual people that we have been able to touch over the years.
If you are interested in becoming a member of our board we would like to hear from you. As openings arise, we seek new members to help us continue our work in Jackson County. Please call our office and speak to our executive director, Melanie O'Neal at (812) 522-3480.
