Our mission is improving the lives of people with mental illness in South Carolina, promoting mental health, preventing mental disorders and achieving victory over mental illness through advocacy, education, research and service.
MHASC and its affiliates provide education and awareness activities, advocacy, support groups, and housing. In addition, psycho-social treatment services, mental health screenings, prevention activities and other support services help mental health consumers in their recovery. Our work in South Carolina is accomplished largely through partnerships and collaborations with many organizations on a state and local level.
We are instrumental in several key collaborative efforts, including the SC State Housing Task Force, SC Department of Mental Health Planning Council, The Substance/Alcohol Committee, the SC Behavioral Health Coalition, SC Housing and Homeless Coalition and the Mental Health for Seniors Task Force in the Lt. Governor’s office.
