Ralph, a Vietnam Veteran, came to us in need of life changes due to alcohol use, financial strain, and health issues. We immediately connected him to peer groups, veteran affairs assistance, and helped him establish financial security. Ralph has found stability and well-being through our Veterans Behavioral Health Program.

"I found myself in dire need of assistance with VA claims and other resources. MHA allowed me to vent and helped me understand what is available. During my journey, I struggled with alcohol use and feelings of isolation in this world. Today, I look forward to the future and I know that MHA will help me with anything I need."

Your investment in Mental Health America of Greater Houston ensures that Veterans and all in Southeast Texas have equal access to mental health resources.

Su***de is on our minds and in the headlines. Lately, when someone dies by su***de, we're hearing others give the directive to, "check in on your strong friends." This type of messaging is misguided and can leave families and friends who have lost a loved one, with persistent guilt and depression.

While checking in on your friends is important, it's more important to take action.

Preventing su***de is a community effort that requires a commitment to social action and legislative change. Invest in MHA of Greater Houston as we prepare to go to Austin for the upcoming legislative session to advocate for su***de prevention and intervention resources and programs.

Your donation today sends a signal that mental health is a priority to you and your community. We can't do this work without you. www.mhahouston.org/donation

Happy Veterans Day! We extend our sincerest gratitude to those who have proudly served our country.

This Veteran’s Day, we caught up with Veteran and MHA’s Military Veteran Peer Network Coordinator, Edward Howard. We asked Edward why he is passionate about the work he and his team do every day and here is what he had to say:

"As the Military Veteran Peer Network Coordinator for Mental Health America of Greater Houston. I have the opportunity to be the first contact for Veterans, service members, and their families by providing resources and various training throughout Harris and Fort Bend County.

The amount of joy that is provided when combat-wounded veterans become self-sufficient strengthens my belief in community and a higher power. I believe each day is a blessing and with that comes the responsibility to help those who are less fortunate than yourself.”

Thank you, Edward, for the wonderful work you do every day and for serving our country.

I saw this on a car. I love that parenting wisdom can be shared in this unique and powerful way. It will be read thousands of times!
Thanks to our partners at the La Porte Police Department for attending our coalition meeting yesterday. We had an important discussion on mental health, social determinants of health and trauma. We had a wonderful presenter, Kara Hill from Mental Health America of Greater Houston. Our coalition members also painted rocks with positive affirmations! ☺️☺
The nonprofit, Advancing Parenting, would like to share a rather unusual and free resource for promoting positive childhood experiences and preventing adverse childhood experiences.

Parenting Norms Bumper Stickers

Advancing Parenting makes them available at no cost to doctors' offices, schools, organizations, agencies, and businesses. There are fifty-two in a set and each sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way for friends, family, and community members to share parenting wisdom. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be given away at events and/or put in holders and placed on counters so folks can select one for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to request this free resource and be placed on our waiting list. Please share.
