Founded in 1909 by Clifford W. Beers, Mental Health America (MHA) is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all. During his stays in public and private institutions, Beers witnessed and was subjected to horrible abuse. From these experiences, Beers set into motion a reform movement that took shape and is known today as Mental Health America.
MHA’s programs and initiatives fulfill its mission of promoting mental health and preventing mental illness through advocacy, education, research and services. MHA’s national office and its 200+ affiliates and associates around the country work every day to protect the rights and dignity of individuals with lived experience and ensure that peers and their voices are integrated into all areas of the organization.

Arch Street Center is an independent non-profit offering a membership-based day program for adults living with serious mental illness. We provide a safe, caring, and judgment-free space with a focus on socialization, recreation, and empowerment. Many adults with mental health issues find themselves isolated, with few close friends or family to rely on and at a high-risk for being neglected or forgotten by the communities in which they live. At Arch Street Center members can meet with peers, form new friendships, relax, and enjoy themselves without the burden of stigma or other outside pressures. Our dedicated staff strives to create a welcoming, friendly, and respectful environment. We work in tandem with local, state, and private agencies to provide the consistent social support and positive human connections necessary for overall health and well-being. Since 1983, our main objective has been to support the entire person, body, mind and spirit, and to make the effort to understand each and every member’s unique, individual needs. We work hard to make Arch Street Center a place where our members feel they belong.

Today, we are an alliance of more than 600 local Affiliates and 48 State Organizations who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
