Our new name better reflects our regional presence, and other changes are afoot as well. Recognizing that individuals with mental health disorders experience substance use at higher rates, MHASWPA cannot ignore the substance use and opioid epidemic hitting our communities. In an effort to adapt to this need, MHASWPA has revised its mission to include substance use. Revising the agency’s mission to include substance use is the first of many steps in becoming more responsive to the changing needs of the community and propelling us forward as we strive to develop programs in key areas of both mental health and substance use.
See our new Mission Statement as part of our YEAR IN REVIEW 2017.
Help us celebrate as we honor visionaries in behavioral health.

National MHA's screening tool currently hosts 9 screens: Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, PTSD, Alcohol and Substance use, a Youth and Parent screen, a Work Health Survey, and a Psychosis screen. Your score does not indicate that you have one of these diagnoses, simply that you may have some of the uncomfortable feelings associated with the disorders.
Once you have taken the screening and received your score, return to the MHA-SWPA website for additional resources.
