The Mental Health Association of Nebraska (MHA-NE) is a consumer-run, voluntary not-for-profit statewide association with Chapters located in communities throughout Nebraska. MHA-NE brings together service recipients, families, professionals, advocates and concerned citizens to address all aspects of mental health and mental illness.

MHA-NE supports freedom for individuals with mental illness. Freedom to take advantage of any of life’s opportunities.
