Who We Are

By The Numbers

Established in 1946 the Mental Health Association of Central Florida is the leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all. With 1 in 5 adults having a diagnosable mental health condition in any given year (with half of those developing conditions by the age of 14) the Association’s work of promoting mental wellness and equity of access to mental health care is rooted in providing mental health services, support and information to the members of the Central Florida community.

“When I finally reached out to the Connections referral counselor, at the MHACF, they didn’t just answer the phone. They answered my call. I have now been a client of the MHACF Outlook Clinic for several months and the difference it has made has been like waking up from a dark night. While I am still not fully where I want to be, I am amazed by the progress I have made. I have finally found the strength to look inside and see the real me. They have made me realize that it is okay to get help.”
