As a community, we are changing the conversation about mental illness. As you know 1 in 4 people deals with some form of mental illness, directly or indirectly. It may affect you, your friends, or your loved ones. Mental illness is feared and stigmatized in our society, often leading to social exclusion and even wholesale denial of its reality. Inadequate social policy often leaves mental health populations prone to unemployment, homelessness, and incarceration, and further reinforces the fear and marginalization. Maybe you know a vet suffering from PTSD, or a homeless person who desperately needs care. Maybe it’s an individual recently released from jail and back on the streets. A small $1 donation can transform one person’s life. Each success story becomes a shining beacon of hope. Your donation creates and sustains art groups, peer leadership opportunities, and even provides technical training workshops. Being part of the solution, you will help bring about a much-needed change.
