Engagement Tools for Achieving & Maintaining Wellness

At MHANYS we believe engaging families and other social supports are fundamental to the process of an individual achieving and maintaining wellness. That is why we devote significant resources and expert staff in the role of involving families, friends and loved ones in the recovery process by empowering them with tools for success. Through a variety of seminars, training workshops and advocacy services we strive to help individuals and families become participants that are well equipped in achieving and maintaining their wellness.
