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.

Take a Screening

Taking a mental health screening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition. Mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, are real, common and treatable. And recovery is possible. Continue reading “Take a Screening”

Crisis Resources

NOTE:  In life-threatening situations, telephone 911!

We heavily promote three main resources addressing crisis situations:

  • Targeting mainly teens and young adults, the Crisis Text Line is a resource for tough times via text.
  • The Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is a nationally accessible option for those in crisis.
  • Indiana’s Be Well Crisis Helpline is our state’s mental health and resource authority.

All are available 24/7, and offer free, confidential support by trained counselors. Continue reading “Crisis Resources”
