Mission Statement:

The purpose of the Washington County Association for Mental Health is to promote and assist in the development and coordination of programs and policies which improve behavioral health outcomes in Washington County and surrounding areas.

Social Determinants of Health  A “place-based” organizing framework, reflecting five (5) key areas of social determinants of health (SDOH), was developed by Healthy People 2020. WCWI has aligned our goals and objectives with the Healthy People 2020 goals and objectives, focusing on the areas of most concern identified in the 2014-2015 Community Needs Assessment.  These five key areas (determinants) include: • Economic Stability • Education • Social and Community Context • Health and Health Care • Neighborhood and Built Environment

Three Steps for Being STIGMA Free Step 1 Educate Yourself and Others Everyone knows a little about mental health issues but knowing the facts can help you educate others and reject stigmatizing stereotypes. They are not the result of personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing. Understanding mental health isn't only about being able to identify symptoms and having a name for conditions, but dispelling false ideas about mental health conditions as well.


Three Steps for Being STIGMA Free Step 2 See The Person, Not the Condition 1 in 5 Americans 1ive with a mental health condition and each of them has their own story, path and journey that says more about them than their diagnosis does. Whether you are a friend, family member, caregiver or medical professional, getting to know a person and treating them with kindness and empathy means far more than just knowing what they are going through.


Three Steps for Being STIGMA Free Step 3 Take Action Our mental health care system has been in crisis for far too long; often keeping treatment and recovery out of the hands of many who need it. We can take action now as we push for better legislation and policies to improve lives for everyone. By lending your support, you can show that this cause is important to you.


I CAN . . . Educate myself and others on mental health and opioid use disorder See the whole person, not just the condition Take action within your spheres of influence Continue to be an ally to people with mental health conditions Support . . .

Together, we can #CureStigma
