Who We Are

Mental Health America of Illinois (MHAI), a leading non-profit, statewide organization, has worked to promote mental health, prevent mental disease and improve the care and treatment of those suffering from mental and emotional disorders. Continued cuts in state and federal funding of resources and treatment for mental illness makes MHAI’s work more important than ever. MHAI continues to find innovative approaches to ensure mental health services are available in our communities.
