50th Anniversary

The Mental Health Association of Erie County is celebrating a golden anniversary.

Kenneth Houseknecht, Executive Director of the MHA, told WBFO/AM970 the mission of his organization is twofold. 

"A lot of our services are aimed at promoting and clarifying what  constitutes good mental health," Houseknecht said.

"Right from the very youngest age through all of the life events: single people, married people,
families; so, mental health and wellness is a big part of what we do."

Equally key to their mission is treatment.
