What is Macon Mental Health Matters

According to Mental Health America,

Georgia is number 51 for access to mental health care in America. This program addresses the access issue in our state and it will firmly place Macon as a leader in addressing this issue.

 

Inability to pay for this care should not be a barrier to obtaining access to care.

 

The Macon Mental Health Matters (MMHM) initiative services include mental health counseling for both individuals and families, financial counseling, conflict resolution, non-traditional mental health activities (yoga, pop-up gyms, training, parenting/IECMH, etc.) and these services are offered in the community at no cost to the client, increasing the opportunity for access to care.

 

This program incorporates a holistic approach for reducing recidivism, resolving conflict without using violence, and increasing access to mental health care within the Macon-Bibb County area.

 

This program also serve to raise awareness, and inform the people within the community about therapy in general. This will lead to destigmatizing mental health as well as increasing access to mental health care.

Our Vision

Our vision is to move the needle leading to destigmatizing mental health as well as increasing access to mental health care.
