About Us

From mental illness to mental wellness… how can we help you get there?

When you’re struggling with your own mind, even getting through the day can be difficult. The biggest issues sometimes aren’t even your mental illness itself… it’s dealing with the world around you.

Stigma makes everything harder, of course. Then comes finances, job, family… life can get complicated pretty quickly, regardless of whether you’re suffering yourself or supporting someone who is.

Mental Health America of Dutchess County is  a nonprofit organization dedicated to making sure nobody gets left behind in our community due to lack of mental health services. Our staff and volunteers work day and night to:

strengthen families
overcome fear
help people dealing with anxiety
link individuals to the supports they need
provide safe spaces to heal
break down stigma
...and much, much more.

Our Goal

We’re working to create a world where anyone can get access to the full spectrum of mental health services they need, without jumping through unnecessary hoops.

We believe mental wellness benefits the whole community! That’s why we honor these beliefs:

Integrity

It’s hard to heal without support from someone you trust. That’s why we offer you a safe space, respect your confidence, and work hard to earn your trust.

Dignity

To have dignity is to be worthy of honor or respect. We envision a society where every individual is treated with dignity regardless of where you came from or your current situation.

Compassion

Everybody’s got a story to tell, and we’re here to support you in yours. We’re ready to listen to your situation, and deliver you the complete and unique care you need.

At the end of the day, all of this is just words. The people who are delivering you the care is where the magic really lies. So we wanted to introduce you to some of our most committed staff and volunteers:
