Welcome to the Mental Health Association of South Mississippi
Mental Health Association of South Mississippi has been working to support and empower people who suffer from mental illness since 1963.
In response to the presence of stress and mental illness, Mental Health Association of South MS provides resources and support services for those seeking mental wellness and recovery within our community. This includes mental health, intellectual disability disorder, substance abuse and homelessness issues. Each year the organization serves over 3,900 meals, provides assistance to 250 people experiencing homelessness, provides supportive housing for 15 chronically homeless individuals and provides wellness information to several hundred people. Five Certified Peer Support Specialists work for the agency; these individuals have lived experience with mental health challenges and can help others in their recovery.
