Mental Health

Achieving optimal health when struggling with a mental illness is challenging. Finding housing, primary care or eating healthy foods – all key elements for a healthy life – frequently become insurmountable.

HAH has provided mental health services for 30 years, focusing on those with a serious mental illness and the fewest resources. We believe that addressing mental illness is a prerequisite to improving health.
