The Annual Friend & Leader Award Dinner salutes individuals whose work contributes to progress in awareness, health promotion, prevention, and effective treatment for children and adults affected by mental health challenges throughout Massachusetts.
There could be no more important time to reaffirm our commitment to promote mental health and end disparities in access to care. Massachusetts Association for Mental Health (MAMH) looks forward to holding this event this year (with in-person and virtual options available for attendees) to celebrate the leadership in Massachusetts from individuals, communities, providers, and policy leaders.

MAMH analyzed the Massachusetts State Budget for fiscal year 2022 and its impact on people with behavioral health conditions and their families.
We are pleased to report that the FY22 State Budget is exceptionally strong for behavioral health.
Our legislative agenda supports three main goals: expanding access, decriminalizing mental health, and promoting wellness.
MAMH staff and partners work closely with legislators on bills to support each of these priorities.
A 2016 Boston Globe investigation reported that nearly half of people shot and killed by police in MA have a mental health condition.
An MAMH issue brief shows reform is needed to create an effective behavioral health response system.
