Our Story

Abbie Rosenberg, RN PMHNP

Founder, Executive Director

β€œIn my 30 plus years of working as a therapist and psychopharmacologist, I have become increasingly aware of the shame, stigma and lack of education that exists within communities around mental health challenges and mental disorders.

In 2017, a patient who had moved out of state, sadly lost his battle with depression and anxiety and died by suicide. Mental Health Collaborative was sparked in his honor and in his memory as well as in memory of the many other people that suffer silently and have tragically lost their lives too early.

We believe that with education and awareness, we can work together to decrease stigma and open the door to conversations about mental illness. Our mission is to build informed, resilient communities through education and awareness. We hope to improve mental health literacy in as many communities as we can.”

Our Vision

Informed communities where people flourish, live the lives they imagine for themselves and engage in the promotion of mental well-being. We are dedicated to ending stigma and improving mental health literacy across communities by moving away from a crisis based response toward a model of prevention through education and awareness.
