The purpose of the Regional Mental Health Awareness Training (MHAT) Grant Program is to increase the capacity of the Johnston, Murray, and Pontotoc County communities in responding to and interacting with individuals in crisis or with other mental health and behavioral health issues. This program will train individuals in the community, including teachers, parents, law enforcement, faith-based leaders, youth group leaders, tribal partners, veterans and families, and more, to improve mental health awareness and understanding. The program will also serve as a connection resource to better link individuals and families with mental health or behavioral issues to appropriate services.
