PMHCA recognizes the expertise that comes out of lived experience. We are an organization governed, managed, and staffed by individuals who identify as being on their own mental health recovery journeys. Together we work to support all recovery journeys.

PMHCA also advocates on issues directly related to mental health recovery and services in Pennsylvania both for individuals and system-wide.

PMHCA promotes and supports recovery through advocacy and education with the goal of eliminating stigma and discrimination around mental health issues.
