Mission: To promote positive mental health for all persons in our community through advocacy, education and service.
Mental Health America of Greenville County (MHAGC) is the local chapter of a nationwide, voluntary membership organization dedicated to working for America's mental health and victory over mental illness. MHAGC is the only broad-based organization in Greenville County dedicated to addressing all aspects of mental health and mental illness. It was formerly named Mental Health Association of Greenville County.
MHAGC has a unique expertise regarding suicide prevention, intervention, and after-care in our Greenville community through our Crisis Intervention Services (CIS) program, including our Survivors of Suicide support group and closed grief groups. CRISISline is a 24-hour, 7-day a week confidential hotline offering a nonjudgmental sounding board for people to talk about life's struggles.
MHAGC has several consumer independent living support services for those disabled by mental illness. Those services include a Representative Payee Program, Operation Santa and Housing. These programs provide support so that individuals may live independently in safe affordable housing.
The backbone of MHAGC remains rooted in mental health education and advocacy. We achieve this through our Mental Health Matters! (MHM) education program. The goal of this program is to promote positive mental health by emphasizing the importance of mental well-being.
