The vision of the Missouri Mental Health Foundation is to have Missourians appreciate the importance of mental health and assist in restoring hope to persons living with mental illness, developmental disabilities and substance use disorders.
What We Do
Our efforts battle stigma and discrimination, promote care and treatment, and foster inclusion in the community and workforce. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors and managed by an Executive Director.
The Foundation collaborates with the Missouri Department of Mental Health, as well as other organizations, in providing broad-based public education, awareness and stigma reduction services. Such services may include positive media communications, PSAs, marketing to the general public, providing mental health resource materials and assistance, hosting and/or coordinating special events and trainings, and providing technical assistance in areas such as suicide prevention, Mental Health First Aid, eating disorders and educational awareness campaigns.
