Support AMHT

We recognize that mental health services rarely pay for themselves, because of the financial vulnerability of the people we serve. Thus, we are dependent upon donor funding to provide these services, so that we can work in cooperation with government to serve the very poor. We appreciate all of our past and present donors, and acknowledge that, without their support we cannot provide these services. We value the input of our associates and Circle of Friends, for advice, support, and finance.
