Mental Health Advocacy Services 

Thank you for making a difference
in our community!

As 2014 comes to a close, we thank everyone who made it possible for Mental Health Advocacy Services to provide free legal services to low-income adults and children with mental disabilities this year: our volunteers, staff, board members, and many generous supporters. 

2015 is just around the corner, but there's still time to
make your tax-deductible 2014 contribution until December 31st.


We wish you and your loved ones a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Mental Health Advocacy Services

The mission of Mental Health Advocacy Services (MHAS) is to protect and advance the legal rights of children and adults with mental disabilities, in order to maximize autonomy, promote equality, and secure the resources needed to thrive in the community. MHAS was founded in 1977 as a project of the Los Angeles County and Beverly Hills Bar Associations. In 1979 MHAS became an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. MHAS provides free legal services to approximately 3,000 low-income adults and children annually, with an emphasis on obtaining government benefits and services, protecting rights and fighting discrimination. MHAS also serves as a resource to the community by providing training and technical assistance to attorneys, mental health professionals, consumer and family member groups, and other advocates. In addition, MHAS participates in impact litigation in an effort to improve the lives of people with mental disabilities.
