Mission Statement

Opening Minds. Changing Lives.

Mental Health America of the Triangle, formerly known as the Mental Health Association in Orange County, believes it's past time to broaden our view of health to include the wellbeing of our minds.

We work to increase the value our community places on mental health, improve understanding and perceptions about mental illness, and support those who live with these conditions. We do this work by sponsoring community-wide events, sharing information about mental illness, and providing free programs to people in need.

Description

Mental Health America of the Triangle seeks to improve the lives of people dealing with common mental health issues as well as those coping with severe and persistent mental illness. One way we change lives is through the free programming we offer those in need. Our Programs include: The Pro Bono Counseling Network (which provides screening and referrals to free counseling services in our community), The Compeer Program (which matches volunteers with individuals coping with mental illness in supportive friendships), The Family Advocacy Network (which provides support, education, and advocacy to parents and families of children with various special needs), and The Community Backyard (which addresses gaps in mental health and substance abuse services in our community).
