Mission Statement

The Mental Health Association of Nassau County (MHANC) is a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to improving mental health care and promoting mental health programs through advocacy, education and community services.

Description

Since its founding in 1953, the MHANC has advocated for the needs of adults and children with psychiatric and emotional difficulties. This priority has guided our mission for over five decades and led us to develop concrete rehabilitation services that benefits adults and children with psychiatric disabilities.

To serve this often-neglected population, we focus upon educating the community-at-large and assisting people get to the services they needed.

We are proud to say that we opened the first group home in Nassau County, the first children’s residence for autistic children, the first supported education program for college students and the first newly constructed permanent-home apartment complex for adults with psychiatric disabilities. These innovations represent more than achievements; they represent progress in the standards of programs and services for those with mental illnesses.
