In the last five years Montgomery Area Mental Health Authority, Inc. (or “MAMHA” for short), has been steadily growing and is improving the lives of many patients in the Montgomery area. One of its most popular programs is called the Montrose Center, which provides intensive services to the residents of Montgomery, including outpatient counseling, medical care, residential therapy, respite from symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and family-centered therapies that can be tailored to the specific needs of each patient.
MAMHA was created in the 1970s, so it wasn’t long after Montgomery residents began to suffer from serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. Since then, MAMHA has developed a very good reputation for its clinical care and treatment of these conditions. The agency has also worked hard to improve the general quality of life of the residents of Montgomery, as well. This has included establishing several community outreach programs, as well as providing an array of educational services to help residents cope with their mental illnesses and regain control of their lives.
For any resident of Montgomery, finding the right mental health center for them may seem daunting at first. But this isn’t always the case. There are numerous programs to choose from in the Montgomery area, and MAMHA can make a big difference in the lives of their residents. As with any other facility, there will be some challenges, but those that stick to the program will have a great time, and feel better about themselves and the people they know. If you or someone you care about is facing mental illness or another problem, contact a Montgomery, Alabama mental health agency to find out more about what they have available.
