Diversity at Mental Health Association Oklahoma

We are committed to playing a role in creating a more equitable society in which our organization, employees, and communities will thrive.

This means we seek to build and foster a diverse workforce that is a true reflection of our mission and vision – empowering, inspiring, and unique – where all of our employees feel at home to perform their best and be themselves.

In addition to amplifying a culture that celebrates our differences, our Employment First program provides more support, visibility, and empowerment to our underrepresented employees, especially staff members who have been impacted by mental illness, homelessness and those with previous nonviolent convictions.

Our definition of diversity means not only being inclusive of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, religions, abilities, and sexual orientations, but must also include breaking down the barriers to employment for people who have overcome the challenges of mental illness, homelessness, substance abuse and those with nonviolent felonies.

…. And we practice what we preach.

  • 55% have a history of mental illness
  • 22% have experienced homelessness
