A message from our Executive Director

Anne Arundel County Mental Health Agency (AACMHA) opposes racism and racial discrimination in the strongest possible terms; both out of respect for each individual’s humanity and, as the mental health authority for the county, out of concern for the public health.  We hold each of AACMHA’s employees to the highest standards in terms of respecting each other and every member of the community we serve. 

AACMHA understands that all forms of racism and racial discrimination negatively affect mental health and wellbeing.  Last year, the Anne Arundel County Department of Health declared racism as a public health issue.  Recently, the Health Department launched a COVID-19 Health Equity Initiative, and is setting up an Office of Health Equity and Racial Justice.  AACMHA wholeheartedly supports this important work and continues to work with the Anne Arundel County Department of Health on these critical initiatives.
