Founded in 2008, the Missouri Mental Health Foundation (MMHF) is a non-profit organization established to provide a singular focus on raising awareness and public understanding of the many issues impacting individuals and families living with mental illness, developmental disabilities, and substance use disorders. Our efforts battle stigma and discrimination, promote care and treatment and foster inclusion in the community and the workforce. The Foundation collaborates with the Missouri Department of Mental Health, as well as other organizations, in providing broad-based public education, awareness, and stigma reduction services. Such services may include positive media communications, PSAs, marketing to the general public, providing mental health resource materials and assistance, hosting and/or coordinating special events and trainings, and providing technical assistance in areas such as suicide prevention, Mental Health First Aid, eating disorders and educational awareness campaigns.
