The Association’s Statewide Work



Promoting Mental Health

Our free support groups and socialization programs empower individuals to engage in community life while receiving guidance and support. In addition, we help people navigate the mental health system and they can continue to call on us until they find solutions.


Ending Homelessness

We provide approximately 1,500 units of housing all over the Tulsa metro area -- including housing for transition age youth ages 18-25. We’ve expanded our housing into Oklahoma City, where we now have approximately 120 units of safe, decent and affordable housing.


Suicide Prevention

In high schools in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, we provide a teen wellness screening that identifies the warning signs of suicide. In the community, we provide free suicide prevention trainings. We also serve people in a suicide crisis by connecting them to live-saving services.


Criminal Justice Reform

We believe non-violent people experiencing mental illness, substance use and homelessness deserve treatment not punishment. Our criminal justice work encompasses our programs and services, as well as full-time lobbying at the Capitol.


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.
