HISTORY

Mental Health Aberdeen is an independent local charity founded in 1950 under the name of Aberdeen and North East Association for Mental Health. MHA is one of the oldest organisations of its kind.
One of the main objectives was to educate the public about mental illness, and so, conferences and public meetings were arranged. Training courses were set up and approved by the local education authority. The organisation was also part of the successful campaign for the voluntary sector to have a say in the planning of services for the mentally ill.
