Mental Health & Aging Project

The Mental Health & Aging Project (MHAP), funded by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, is a program unit at Lansing Community College.

The project also assists individuals in the aging network and other service systems who work with older adults with mental illness, dementia, and/or developmental disabilities in a wide variety of settings.
