Mission Statement

Mental Health America of Dutchess County is a voluntary, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of mental health, the prevention of mental illness and the improved care and treatment of persons with mental illnesses. Mental Health America brings together service recipients, families, professionals,advocates and concerned citizens dedicated to addressing issues and policies related to mental health and mental illness.

Description

Friendship is about being there for someone. But for people with mental illness, too often there is no one to turn to when they need a friend. That's where Compeer steps in.

A pioneer in Mental Health Advocacy, Compeer is an organization that matches community volunteers in relationships with adults in Mental Health care or with emotional challenges. The Agency's programs and services empower people to combat the effects from loneliness to isolation and low self-worth.

Our Volunteers have helped us make friends and change lives for more than 30 years!
