Why Join MMHA?

Members of the Mormon Mental Health Association unite around a shared mission:

Mission Statement

The Mormon Mental Health Association (MMHA) is a secular professional association for mental health providers, educators, and researchers who offer ethical and culturally competent services and information to persons along the continuum of involvement in and commitment to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and churches connected to the restoration movement of Joseph Smith, and to those who identify with the broader Mormon cultural experience.

The mission of the Mormon Mental Health Association (MMHA) is to:

Help connect ethical, culturally sensitive clinicians and to persons who are seeking out such providers.

Educate ecclesiastical leaders and church members on evidence-based best practices in mental health and well-being.

Advocate for therapeutic practices, church policies, research endeavors, and social justice initiatives that support positive mental health for Mormons.

We practice the following strategies to fulfill this mission:
