Educational Programs

MHALC believes in educating individuals to make informed decisions about their mental health and helping to eliminate the widespread stigma associated with mental illness and health.

Our Mental Health Academy was developed in response to the need for ongoing education in our schools, businesses, prisons, community groups and churches. Ask about developing a customized presentation, training, panel discussion, speaker or workshop to accomplish your long-term educational goals.  We also offer QPR certification training on a monthly basis.

Access to MHA’s free lending library of videos, books and pamphlets 245 Butler Avenue, Suite 204, Lancaster, PA  71601 is currently suspended. However you may request a non-contact pick up customized materials, information on MHA services, gun lock kits, suicide prevention wallet cards and crisis sign on weekdays between 9 am and 4 pm.    View our library collection here.

If you’re interested in taking courses to expand your own knowledge about mental health, responding to a crisis or building coping skills, check out the MHALC Wellness Academy.   MHALC will train you as an individual or bring a full-scale training to your business or group.
