TMHA Mission Statement: A nonprofit organization serving San Luis Obispo and North Santa Barbara Counties, TMHA is dedicated to eliminating stigma and promoting recovery and wellness for people with mental illness through work, housing, community and family support services.
Our history was born from what became the San Luis Obispo Mental Health Association - formerly known as the San Luis Obispo Mental Hygiene Society - and its partnership with the County of SLO. Thanks to a 1979 document titled "The Model for California Community Mental Health Programs," our state had enough evidence to emphasize the importance of quality mental health care, community participation, attention to rural and minority populations, and resources without barriers. From acute and emergency care to case management and outreach services, The California Model inspired state grants to incorporate a wider range of mental health care to all consumers at different stages of recovery. 25 counties ultimately received grants to establish these programs. San Luis Obispo was one of them.
