Welcome summer under the open sky as Get On Your Mat For Mental Health returns on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 5:30pm! Join The Mental Health Association of Westchester for an empowering and energetic community-driven mega-yoga event in Turnure Park in downtown White Plains. A “Best of Westchester” award-winner and named “one of the world’s most inspiring mega-yoga events” by well+GOOD, the event features mindfulness, meditation, movement and music – all for a good cause.
The Mental Health Association of Westchester is pleased to announce the appointment of Charlotte Ostman, LCSW-R to the position of Chief Executive Officer.
“The Board of Directors is delighted that Charlotte has become the next Chief Executive Officer of the organization. We are completely confident that she is the right person to lead MHA,” said Board of Directors President Michael Lombardi.
In an effort to enhance the safety and well-being of children in Westchester County, The Mental Health Association of Westchester offers several services to support these children. Our next Host Visitation training period begins on June 15th. Read more below, and apply today!
At MHA, we believe that a safe, loving and permanent home is every child's right. Assigned by a Family Court Judge, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are trained community volunteers who monitor and report on the physical health, behavioral health and education needs of children who are in foster care or at risk for foster care.
The Mental Health Association of Westchester embraces open conversation about the serious problems of bullying, sexual assault and risk of suicide. Like other advocates and mental health experts, we are concerned about the messages that youth may take away from the Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why. The attention generated by the show offers an important opportunity to talk frankly about difficult challenges faced by children, adolescents and young adults. It is an opportunity that should not be missed.
