We are thrilled to present Catoctin Affair 2.0, Stand With MHA – A Virtual Celebration! Join us right here for our physical distancing spin on our annual fundraising gala. 

Not only is May Mental Health Awareness Month, 2020 marks 55 years that the Mental Health Association of Frederick County has stood together with our community, building a strong foundation of emotional wellness. During our virtual event, we will be celebrating you, our advocates, and the programs MHA provides now and in the future.
