Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana (MHANI) has seen people from all walks of life increasing their desire to learn how to support the mental health of their families, friends and, most importantly, themselves. Widespread mental health education has been a cornerstone of our mission since MHANI was founded in 1954. Our trainings increase public knowledge regarding mental health topics like stress, understanding mental illness, and suicide prevention.

Mental health stigma cannot thrive in an environment of understanding. Education reduces stigma, dispels myths, and increases acceptance of people impacted by mental health challenges. Will you battle stigma, provide education, and increase understanding alongside us? Your sponsorship supports this crucial work. Be a catalyst for building a community that values and supports mental health.
