The Extra Mile
of Southeast Louisiana

Go the extra mile.
It’s never crowded.

Since 1991, we’ve been working to spread knowledge on mental health and help enhance the lives of all persons receiving public human and social services.

The first step is to break the silence on Mental Health,
the second step is to break the stigma.

The Extra Mile is a way of making a difference in the lives of people in the community.  It provides an opportunity for each of us to bring our particular skill and interests together to find solutions to the problems that exist. We must reach out in our community to make a difference. The Extra Mile works to fill the gaps.

We are friends, family, and consumers of behavioral health and developmental disabilities.

 
 
 

Our Mission

The Extra Mile of Southeast Louisiana’s mission is to enhance and enrich the quality of life for all persons who receive public behavioral health and developmental disability services in Southeast Louisiana.

We educate people about mental illnesses, and help support individuals and families with human service needs.
