Wellness, Education, and Advocacy
Mental Health Association in Ulster County, Inc.
The MHA mission is to engage all people in achieving their optimal mental health by providing innovative and compassionate services that educate, advocate, prevent and heal. To achieve its mission, the MHA sponsors a variety of educational, advocacy and service programs, including mental health education, rehabilitation, residential services, family and youth support services, and therapeutic foster care. MHA offers the following programs:
MHA’s Wellness Program
The Wellness Program is based upon a clubhouse model where a full spectrum of psycho-social support services can be accessed. The Wellness Services Program is designed to provide “hard rehabilitative services” that include recovery based education, job readiness training, career planning, literacy, social and community skills training and linkages with other community based health services. "Soft" rehabilitative services are an additional and complementary component to services that include leisure-time planning, the pursuit of personal interests and the development of hobbies and talents in the areas of occupational and art therapies, community integration, and social skills training.
RAH (Respite, Advocacy, and Health)
The RAH Program is a unique MHA Program in that we are funded by the NYS Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) rather than OMH. The RAH program focuses on serving people whose primary diagnoses are developmental disabilities versus having a primary diagnosis of mental illness. Eligibility for RAH: persons 18+, OPWDD eligible, Resident of Ulster County or Dutchess County, not in residential program or home care services, no severe behaviors, anger, or violence, must be independent with ADLs.
Program hours: Wednesdays from 3:00-7:00pm Saturdays from 10:30-3:00pm (weekly alternating in-house and out-of-house activities)
