Closure of The Mental Health Association in Cattaraugus County

It is with great sadness that I post this. After 56 years of operation, the Mental Health Association in Cattaraugus County is closing. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have ceased operations as of December 31st 2014. Some of our programs and staff have relocated to other agencies and locations. The Press Release for this will be attached in the coming days.
