We're excited you're here. Let us tell you a little bit about ourselves.
As a team, we work with communities around the world who are striving to bring change involving mental health. At IMHA, culture comes first. Using a strengths-based approach, we collaborate with communities to build from the greatness in their people and wisdom in their culture.
Throughout our process we innovate and iterate. Creativity and humility are present in every part of our work, we think outside-the-box and learn from our missteps.
Sounds great, but we’re far from realizing that, which means system disruption. We pay close attention to the intersections between mental health and social justice issues, working to find multi-impact solutions are transformative. This isn't an equitable world, so we’ll be working towards that until it is.
At IMHA, we take social responsibility seriously. Mental health interacts not only with the mind, but with the body, the family, the environment and the system. We strive to do-no-harm, stay ethical and grow in health. In all our work, we keep the future in-mind, working to build a better world for future generations and recognizing Earth as our greatest partner.
We want the work we do to create meaningful impact over time, which means change and growth. It’s not a win if our projects sustain themselves forever - in our ideal world, the communities we’ve worked with will move beyond our programming and continue onwards and upwards without us.
The happiest day at IMHA will be when we’ve worked ourselves out of a job.
