Mental Health America of Franklin County (MHAFC) is here to help guide you on your road to better mental health. Finding your way through the mental health system can be difficult. We provide a personal, knowledgeable approach to referring those in need to the appropriate services. Mental health issues affect 1 in 4 individuals each year. Unfortunately, only a mere 16% of those individuals will seek treatment. We are here to help you!
MHAFC is dedicated to promoting mental health, preventing mental disorders and raising awareness and understanding of mental health issues through advocacy, education and support services in our community. We are a private, not-for-profit organization established in 1956.
MHAFC envisions a just, humane and healthy society in which all adults and children receive the help they need, are well informed and are accorded respect, dignity and the opportunity to achieve their full potential, free from stigma and prejudice.
The Pro Bono Counseling Program is a new service that links volunteer mental health professionals in the community with those who need but cannot afford mental health counseling. Our volunteers are licensed mental health professionals that provide short term (less than 12 sessions) of counseling at no cost to the recipient.
