Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many people with mental health and addiction issues struggle to get the help they need because they don't know what is available, have trouble with insurance, have personal issues, unstable living conditions, or other barriers. They feel hopeless, frustrated, or worse because they can't see a way to change their situation for the better, leaving them trapped in poverty and dangerous situations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is the mission of the Mental Health Association in Chautauqua County to provide guidance, support, and advocacy to individuals facing the challenges of mental illness and addiction in our community.

We meet people where they are in their recovery, providing harm reduction, connection to other agencies and resources, and support in building their lives to their own goals. We maintain connections with various departments of the hospital and government and private agencies to improve their ability to serve and support our participants. We have formed special projects in collaboration with other agencies and services for specific needs such as overdose response and supporting at-risk pregnancies.

Not being bound by a participant's ability to pay allows us to help those most in need. We use our connections with the hospital, police and sheriff, rehab centers, local doctors, health department, and more to find the support our participants need to succeed in their goals.

We have established ourselves throughout Chautauqua County as a support agency, getting referrals from clinical sources as well as other participants. We have helped many individuals meet their goals and establish sustainable lives. We will continue to reach out to people in need and to find new ways to help them.
