Who we are
PMHCA is a state-wide member organization dedicated to the support of all people who seek aid for recovery from a mental illness at any stage in their journey.
PMHCA provides resources, referrals, and support to those receiving services or in recovery from a mental illness.
PMHCA provides and refers training to individuals in such areas as Mental Health Advanced Directives, Peer Support, LGBTQI+ Issues, and other training. PMHCA also assists newly formed consumer coalitions to get started.
Through the Glenn Koons Community Peer Specialist Scholarship, PMHCA is helping individuals become peer supports in their community.
