Will You Be an MHA Angel?

Operation Holiday Joy needs you!

The holiday countdown has begun and we have many wish lists still unclaimed. With the average wish list costing between $25 and $75, we invite angels at every level to join us.

As a bonus, giving may be just the happiness booster you could use at this time of the year. A study published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology by Jennifer Aaker, a Professor of Marketing at Stanford Graduate School of Business, suggests that concrete, specific goals of benevolence designed to improve the well-being of others lead to greater happiness.

So get happy with us and be part of our very special group of gift-givers by calling 914-265-7511 or email

Holiday Cheer – Or Not?

The holidays can be a time of great joy and anticipation – as well as stress and anxiety. 

Some suggestions to manage the stress and enjoy your holiday.


Finding the best behavioral health services for children can be a difficult task for parents.  To help provide the best mental health treatment for children, Mental Health America has developed a brief survey about the experiences of parents of children who have received mental health services. Please help by completing this anonymous survey.    Your responses can help shape the future for our children.
