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.
