Who We Are
Mental Health Association of Greater Chicago, better known as MHAGC, is a 501(c)3 independent not-for-profit, volunteer organization. And we are dedicated to helping people live healthier lives with effective mental health education.
Since 1957, we have worked to break the stigma associated with mental illnesses and empower our communities to seek the necessary support to prevent and overcome mental disorders.
We have made this our mission for over six decades and we’ve achieved this by bringing mental health education to schools, homes, and the communities.
Each year, we partner with thousands of young people, teachers, parents, and employers to make mental health a priority through awareness and empowerment.
Our tested, research-based education programs and resources serve to equip you with the right knowledge, skills, and tools to tackle mental health issues for effective identification, prevention, and support.
