Legislative Updates

While Mental Health America of Central Carolinas (MHA) is affiliated at the national level with Mental Health America and is a member of the North Carolina Mental Health Association Collaborative to address statewide issues, we strive to influence public policy based on local community issues. Through nearly 80 years of working in Charlotte and its greater region, we have learned that to make a significant impact, we must form partnerships and coalitions within communities. Therefore, our public policy approach is a grassroots effort.


MHA works collaboratively with the healthcare sector, health and human service agencies, community residents, local businesses, and nonprofit organizations including other advocacy organizations to identify, research, and develop a proactive position on issues specific to Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties.


A facet of our Legislative Education Network includes distributing 1,000s of Legislative eUpdates from MHA each year: If you would like to receive free copies of these distributions sign up today!
