Advocacy Groups

Mental Health Awareness Team
The Society’s Mental Health Awareness Team (MHAT) is a volunteer led group that meets several times throughout the year to plan activities and programs that promote mental health advocacy and education.

The mission of the Mental Health Awareness Team is to raise awareness, reduce stigma, and provide support through education, advocacy, and community to those whose lives have been touched by mental health challenges.

For more information about the Mental Health Awareness Team, or if you’re interested in joining or contributing, please send us an email.

In the case of a mental health emergency, call 911 or seek out a crisis line such as that of the National Alliance on Mental Illness-Minnesota.
