I support El Centro de Amistad because I think we have all experienced someone close to us struggle with a mental health condition. Mental illness does not only affect the individual with mental illness but also the family and community. We are all impacted in some way or another thus it is important for me to increase understanding and awareness of, empathy for, and respect for people with mental health issues. Please support me in my efforts to raise money to support this organization that provides services to over 1,500 clients each year. Your financial support in any amount will be greatly appreciated.
