The MHA is affiliated with EUFAMI (European Federation of Associations of Families of people with Mental Ilness). EUFAMI was founded in 1992 after a congress, which took place in 1990 in De Haan, Belgium, where carers from all over Europe shared their experiences of helplessness and frustration when living with severe mental illness. They resolved to work together to help both themselves and the people they cared for. Mrs Connie Magro is currently serving as Vice President on the EUFAMI Board of Directors.
The St Jeanne Antide Foundation's (SJAF) mission is fulfilled by a community of Sisters and lay people working in partnership systematically in teams for the support and self-empowerment of socially excluded persons, families and minority groups. As a Christian community, it aims to reflect the love of God in all that is done. The MHA and SJAF often manage joint projects together and continue to reach a large number of families within the community.
