What’s happening at MHAoPC…

Amidst the pandemic, we had joined the world in staying home to flatten the curve.  Now with the easing of social distancing restrictions, our events are slowly being rescheduled or offered virtually.

Our local offering of our Helping Children/Co-Parenting classes are resuming with a smaller number of people per class.   If there are extenuating circumstances, please contact our office so we may direct you to a recommended online class that serves as a reliable alternative, enabling participants to complete this court requirement.

MHA in the Community

MHAoPC helps people in our community find and access mental health resources, including seeking professional help, taking a screening, and investigating mental health providers in our region. We can assist if someone knows a situation needs more help than a primary caregiver can provide and of course we can always help if a crisis is imminent. We have resources available for everyone, and there is always someone available who cares and can help.
