Mission & Vision
MHA Village, an adult mental health services program, has evolved since its inception in 1990. Originally called Village ISA (Integrated Services Agency) our first mission statement reflected our focus on hope and persistence. Our mission has been revised to honor the evolution of our culture and emphasize our two part purpose as service providers and change agents.
We have developed 14 new Guiding Principles that guide our work and allow us to continue developing as a community. This is who we are.
Our Mission Statement
To assist people with mental illnesses, recognize their strengths and power to recover and achieve full participation in community life.
To encourage system-wide adoption of the practice and promotion of recovery and well being.
We are social activists.
Our true work is rooted in the real life of our community. We honor each individual’s authority while promoting accountability to the whole. We offer our stories, our experiences and our gifts to form a powerful collective wisdom.
Recovery is the expectation.
Individuals renew their strengths by exercising the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. They use their authority to determine the future and add richness to the mosaic of life.
We are innovative leaders.
We continually reevaluate our services and program making changes and improvements. We share our innovations widely throughout the mental health system. We build relations with agencies and other people in our community promoting a local recovery community.
Community inclusion is the cornerstone of recovery.
We insist that every individual is welcomed as neighbor, friend, co-worker and family. By challenging poverty, discrimination and intolerance, we create opportunities that promote connectedness.
