Founded in 1947 by local citizens, Mental Health America of Roanoke Valley (MHARV) is our community’s oldest nonprofit mental health organization. For seventy years, MHARV has educated people about mental health and mental illness and connected them with community resources for treatment and support.
Today we continue to work for America’s mental health and for victory over mental illnesses right here in the Roanoke Valley. Through advocacy, education, and community services, MHARV:
- reduces the stigma surrounding mental illness;
- increases public knowledge of mental health issues;
- offers resources for children and families; and
- provides access to quality mental health treatment.
Strong financial support and volunteer involvement from our Board of Directors and our members enable us to make a difference in the lives of many individuals in the Roanoke Valley.
