The Mormon Mental Health Association

Supporting Mental Health Within the Mormon Community

 

The Mormon Mental Health Association
was founded in June of 2014 and is run by a fully functioning Board of Directors. 

Mission Statement

The Mormon Mental Health Association (MMHA) is a secular professional association for mental health providers, clinicians, educators and advocates who are interested in or are working with the Mormon population.  By Mormon population we refer to the membership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as members of any church tracing back to the restoration movement of Joseph Smith.


The MMHA is interested in increasing training, research, strategy, collaboration and education in the mental health treatment of Mormons, helping ensure that this population’s needs are being met by trained professionals who adhere to professional ethics codes. This would include the ability to respectfully and adequately treat and educate Mormons self-identifying in any manner of religious belief or non-belief, sexual orientation or preference, gender identity, or any other area they may find themselves in, through an evidence-based, best-practice approach consistent with professional ethics first and foremost. WE advocate for the mental, emotional, relational, and community health of Mormons and seek to insure that our recommended professionals are culturally aware and sensitive to the unique cultural identities of Mormon individuals, couples, and families.

MMHA is a safe place for fearless conversations about Mormon identities, experiences, and their intersections in Best practice clinical, research, and educational work in Psychology.

Goals

1. Provide professionals with the tools, resources and cultural competence they need to succeed in the work they engage in within the Mormon community.


2. Host an annual training conference.


3. Offer a referral list of culturally competent and ethical professionals for the public to use as a resource referral network.


4. Offer educational and clinical resources to the Mormon public and Ecclesiastical Leaders.


5. Support research efforts and professional collaboration among MMHA membership.
