Support for Our Staff

CMAP Opens in new windowThe Community Mental Health Assistance Program, or CMAP, is a program of MHA of Lancaster County, a voluntary program that is both free and confidential.

This program will offer services to essential workers in Lancaster County who do not currently have access to an Employee Assistance Program through their employer’s benefit package.

The CMAP team has carefully selected providers throughout Lancaster County who are partnering with us to provide you with the best care. To get started, contact MHA Lancaster via telephone (717-397-7461) or visit the MHA Website to obtain additional information regarding the CMAP program and the participating providers. The team at MHA will help you determine your program eligibility and help you find the best provider for your needs.
