March marked the one-year anniversary of the start of the pandemic. Since it began, we have seen increasing violence and hatred aimed at our Asian American and Pacific Islander neighbors. MHALA stands in solidarity with our AAPI community and all our communities. We oppose racism, discrimination, and hatred in any form against any and all members of our community.

Services & Programs How Can We Help?
MHALA’s Transition Age Youth program helps young adults ages 18-25 with mental health needs and emotional disturbances, and who are homeless or nearly homeless, to fully integrate into the community.
Our wellness services include workshops or individual counseling to help members develop or augment skills in areas such as communication, financial management, stress management, or daily living skills.
We believe that Veterans and their families deserve a coordinated effort to feel secure and stable.
Our outreach teams connect with individuals who are living on the streets, parks, and other public spaces to establish relationships that can lead to resolving housing, mental health, and other issues.
Mental Health Services
All MHALA programs staff — whether they are a mental health clinician or not — have training in providing a variety of mental health services to our members.
MHALA assists with housing needs at each step in the process — from housing search to acquisition of housing subsidies to housing retention services.
MHALA’s Employment Program provides employment services to individuals with mental health needs by identifying options for them regardless of their barriers.
