Armenian American Mental Health Association (AAMHA) is a non-profit organization, started in 2006 and officially incorporated in April 2009. Our vision has always been to be strong advocates for mental health in the Armenian American community. AAMHA represents professionals of Armenian descent in the fields of psychiatry; psychology; marriage and family therapy; social work; or other mental health specialties. AAMHA aims at the advancement of mental health knowledge in the Armenian community, and culturally sensitive and appropriate mental health practice, through meetings, professional contacts, research, reports, papers, discussions and publications. It aims at helping the Armenian community with mental health issues, at improving existing mental health services for Armenians and at providing leadership in expanding culturally relevant mental health services to meet the specific needs of the Armenian community. AAMHA also aspires at the establishment and maintenance of the highest standards of professional ethics and conduct in the field of mental health.
AAMHA is the outcome of a growing need to bring together professionals involved in the field of mental health to assist the expanding needs of the Armenian American community.
