Who We Are


Our mission is to create a supportive community where all people can flourish

Mental Health America of the Palm Beaches

A flourishing person is living a good, fulfilling life, a life with a sense of purpose. They have the ability to do what they want to do and be who they want to be.

They have good mental health, physical health, and social health in all areas of their lives. This includes family, work, education, and community.

MHA fulfills this mission through its peer-led programs. Individuals who have lived experience with a mental health condition and progressed from illness to recovery are called “peers.” Peer support helps people become and stay engaged in the recovery process through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment.

MHA’s program leadership and staff are all Certified Recovery Peer Specialists (CRPS). MHA is a training and testing site for the CRPS credential, and our programs exclusively utilize the peer support model.
