The Newsfeed

Letter from the Executive Director

Dear Friends,

It’s budget season in Pennsylvania. For people across the state, so much is at stake as legislators consider how to close budget gaps. The Newsfeed’s Budget Update looks at the two paths before us—one that preserves critical funding for programs that help seniors, children, and mental health consumers and another that balances the budget by slashing this funding. MHAPA supports the path that’s responsible and fair and encourages you too as well.

While the budget is top of mind for us these days, we are also excited to introduce a new MHAPA Affiliate. Lawrence County C.A.R.E.S. Center (LCCC) became an Affiliate in January. We recently caught up with executive director Chris Rinker to talk about the organization and its recent growth and goals for the future. Enjoy learning more about this new Western Pennsylvania Affiliate.

As always, thank you for your support.


Sue Walther
Executive Director
