What is Open Minds

The MHA of Rochester understands that every person and family’s experience with mental health is unique. What challenges us and what works for us may be very different. We need everyone’s experience in the mix. While this can be difficult, it all starts with an open mind. Stay engaged and speak your truth so we can make a difference in our community together.

Join us as we celebrate and reflect on our legacy and craft a vision for our future together as the Mental Health Association of Rochester. With Open Minds, we are changing the conversation on mental health.

Honoring Patricia Woods’ Legacy

 

 

After 34 years of leadership at the Mental Health Association of Rochester, Patricia has made a profound impact within the organization and throughout the Rochester Community.  During her tenure she was a pioneer in peer support services and created a range of family aid services, including a life skills center, drop in community center, and ‘warm line’ for people in need of immediate help.

In an effort to honor Patricia, as well as meet the growing needs of our evolving community, we ask you to consider making a gift in recognition of Patricia’s legacy at the MHA.  Your gift will support the MHA’s efforts to provide quality services that empower people with mental illness.  All funds will go to the Mental Health Association’s unrestricted fund.

We are thrilled to be launching this initiative at this year’s Open Minds event!

With your generosity we will be paving the way for tomorrow’s needs while empowering individuals on their journey to finding wellness.
