The SOS (Survivors of Suicide) Group meets the first and third Wednesdays of each month at MHA (The Mental Health Association of Rockland County) at 140 Route 303, Valley Cottage, NY 10989 from 7 to 8:30 pm in Room 132.
The group provides support to individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide.
The death of a loved one through any cause is painful, but losing someone we love to suicide adds another layer of pain and emotions to the experience of loss.
Please call 845-267-2172 x324 for questions or attend the meeting. No registration required.
American Foundation of Suicide Prevention Toll-Free: 1-888-333-AFSP (2377)

MHA’s Rockland Success Team is proud to present our Annual “What’s Cool” Conference “Making Your Mark in the World!”
Each year we address the current concerns that girls are facing in terms of self-confidence, exploring tools for success, understanding parents, thinking about positive role models, and finding a purposeful future leading to happiness in life.
This program attracts 100 girls each year from Rockland County schools. All girls in grades 7 through 12 are welcome to attend and become more empowered!
This year’s event will take place at the Finkelstein Library, Fielding Room at 24 Chestnut Street in Spring Valley NY on Saturday April 6th, 2019 from 1:30 to 3 pm. Doors open at 1 pm and admission ends at 1:30 pm. We cannot admit younger siblings.
Each girl receives refreshments, a goody bag and 2 hours of community service credit for college applications.
If you have questions please call 845 267 2172 x324.

As 2018 draws to a close, it’s important to reflect back and celebrate just a few of the many incredible accomplishments that we have achieved as an agency. It is truly our privilege to positively touch the lives of more than 5,000 community members a year, through more than 36 different programs and services designed to promote hope, offer help, and partner in healing. We could not be the agency we are today without our dedicated staff, committed Board Members, and wonderfully generous volunteers and donors. Please take time this holiday season to celebrate you, and all the ways in which you have supported MHA’s success in providing life-saving services. Below are just a few of our noteworthy accomplishments:
MHA won the 2018 Service Provider of the Year Award from the Rockland Economic Development Corporation
MHA opened the first integrated pharmacy in the Hudson Valley and the 3rd in NY State
MHA secured $705,000 in new funding through grants, contracts and fundraising
MHA was chosen to operate a gold star standard program for children known as Hi Fidelity Wrap Around
MHA was granted a new five year contract through Adult Career & Continuing Education Services to provide vocational services and supports to adults and young adults
MHA was chosen to operate a vocational program for youth known as Work Readiness Internship Development Experience (or WRIDE)
MHA, through CBHS, is now participating in a $2.6M Behavioral Health Care Collaborative grant, one of only two grant awards in the Hudson Valley region
From our MHA family to yours: we wish you peace, love, and prosperity in the coming year. May your days be filled with joy and contentment. Thank you for all you do and all you are on our journey as we connect people, educate families and rebuild lives.
MHA, in collaboration with The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education, Jawonio and Rockland County Pride Center, is hosting a movie screening of Far From the Tree, a film which examines the experiences of families in which parents and children are profoundly different from one another in a variety of ways.
We invite you to join us on December 6 from 7:00-9:30 pm at Clarkstown High School South for a screening of this beautiful film based on the New York Times bestseller by Andrew Solomon. There will be a Q & A with Director, Rachel Dretzin, following the screening. This event is FREE and open to the public.
We hope you will join us on December 6th for the movie screening of this great film! For more information about this event, contact Velvet Reda at extension 257.
