The 2nd Annual MHA Scholarships were awarded to two Fonda-Fultonville High School seniors at our Annual Dinner on May 29, 2014. Lindsay Therrien and Jeananna Warner each received $500 for college related expenses. The aim of the scholarship is to encourage the education of young adults to assist in the prevention and treatment of mental illness, the promotion of mental health, and the empowerment of adults, children, and families whose lives have been affected by mental illness. Both of these young ladies possess the commitment, desire, and compassion to make a difference. Please look for the MHA High School Scholarship Application form in January, 2015.


Our Community Mental Health Promotion team will be exhibiting "Nothing to Hide: Mental Illness in the Family" photo exhibit during the month of October this year. This will be a display of family portraits in which at least one of its members is living with mental illness. Along with photos and quotes from their subjects, we will feature art by local residents who experience mental illness. This exhibit may be viewed at the Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce at 2 N. Main St., Gloversville. The showing will open with a reception on Wednesday, October 8, from 4-6:30 PM. Refreshments will be provided by Lexington Center’s own Home and Career College students.
