Empowering Families through Prevention and Education

Mental Health America of Lake County is a nonprofit agency providing a range of services to families and children designed to prevent crises and enhance family functioning. The many programs of MHA are based in prevention and result in empowerment of individuals served.

 

Our organization stands as one of the premier prevention agencies in Lake County providing evidence-based, culturally-appropriate home-, center-, and school-based parent education services for families. We are grounded in a strength-based philosophy that believes all individuals have strengths and resources for their own empowerment.

 

Mental Health America of Lake County also provides advocacy, education, information, and referral services to all families, related to mental well-being. We are a proud supporter of #B4stage4 campaign which calls attention to the importance addressing mental health symptoms early.
