The Cause


Our Mission

Since 1955, Mental Health Association Oklahoma has envisioned new ways to promote mental health and support those affected by mental illness in our community. Our current programs include housing for over 2,800 individuals and families, many of whom are affected by mental illness. We also offer 11 support groups and peer support programs in Tulsa and Oklahoma City to provide socialization opportunities for those affected by mental illness. Our adolescent programs continue to assist thousands of youth and their families. We provide ongoing educational opportunities to our community on mental health, and we advocate on behalf of those we serve across the state of Oklahoma.

The Cause

We provide more than 1,500 units of safe and affordable housing, along with access to support groups, advocacy, treatment, legal counseling and other community supports. Over the years, we have learned from the success of our tenants that the solution to homelessness is simple and effective: A place to call home and a community of people who believe in their ability to recover with treatment, peer support and social inclusion. Using this model, we are working to eliminate and prevent homelessness of people with mental illnesses and co-occurring disorders throughout Tulsa County and the Oklahoma City metro area.
