The Association’s Statewide Work
The Association’s statewide work is dedicated to promoting mental health and the equity of access to mental health care through advocacy, education, research, service, and housing.
Since 1955, we have worked toward this goal. We have fought for essential access to community-based services. We have stood side-by-side in the face of tragedy and despair. We have leaned on each other through support groups and pro bono counseling services.
Alongside supporters like you, we have watched individuals overcome incredible hardships to flourish, grow and succeed.
Our work includes housing, mental health education, support groups, pro bono counseling, mental health screening and referral, suicide prevention, peer-to-peer recovery services, employment readiness, community health and wellness initiatives, and criminal justice advocacy.
The Association’s housing program utilizes a Housing First model that provides immediate access to safe, decent, and affordable housing for individuals who have experienced mental illness, homelessness and substance use.
Our 2017 Annual Report
Our work and the people we serve are TOO BIG TO IGNORE. The stories shared in the 2017 Annual Report represent why we cannot — and will not — stop making this message heard loud and clear in our communities, the halls of the Capitol, and in every Oklahomans’ living room.
