Mental Health Association of San Mateo County (MHA) was created over 60 years ago as a volunteer organization. Over the years, the scale and scope of our work has increased to cover a range of support services including case management, socialization opportunities and affordable housing for individuals with mental illness in San Mateo County.
Mental Health Association of San Mateo County is dedicated to improving and enriching the quality of life for individuals in our community who have a mental illness, HIV/AIDS or a co-occurring disorder by providing stable housing and supportive services.
