New Hope Enlightenment of Palm Beach is founded on the mission of bettering the world by inspiring everyone to live their lives to their fullest potential and to be the person that God created them to be. We emphasize personal development, health, and spiritual growth; and we aspire to help everyone live their lives full of joy, love, and peace. With your help we can continue to work towards this goal! We hope to make a change on how mental health is viewed and shed light on this crucial and neglected aspect of our lives, and now is the time to put our First Responders First!
We have found a monumental oversight in the awareness of our first responders mental health and the devastating impacts neglecting it can have. Most of us cannot imagine the stress that comes with being a first responder; having to always be strong for everyone else, having to give reassurance to the person in need “that everything is going to be ok,” being the person that won’t leave your side amidst a crisis. This pressure can be immense, and we want to help support these heroes.
We want to offer our first responders the help and support they need if they are silently struggling and fighting just to make it through another day. Millions of people silently struggle and never get the help they need, but this neglect towards mental health has dire consequences. According to the CDC, suicide was one of the top 10 leading causes for death in 2017. Mental health conditions also have been linked to severe long-term illness such as stroke, type 2 diabetes, and even heart disease which the CDC indicated was the number one leading cause for death. If millions of civilians are affected by mental health, one can only imagine the struggles our first responders face.
This neglect of mental health is a common problem in the world today. With our lives consumed by responsibilities, with pressures to pay our bills, make sure mouths are fed, and progress our careers, our mental health becomes non-essential. Our physical health, our sleeping patterns, our success in life, even the mental health of those closest to us are all affected by our own mental health, and the same situation applies to our first responders. Mental health is the foundation of our entire being, impacting us 24/7. With one in five adults and 17% of youth struggling with some form of a mental health condition according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, something needs to change. Too many people silently struggle and too many lives are lost to this terrible, and preventable tragedy. We want to help make that change. Mental health is a subject near and dear to our hearts as we have personally felt the devastation and impacts neglecting it can have on so many lives.
To take action, we have teamed up with the medical community to help first responders deal with the mental stresses they endure on a daily basis. We have found that many of our first responders are not getting the help they truly need due to high insurance deductibles. These insurance deductibles can range from $100.00 to $5000.00 which is an out of pocket expense due at time of visit. It is already difficult for our first responders to make time for these incredibly important appointments, and these out of pocket expenses only add to their struggle of getting the help they truly need. With your donation we can help to pay these deductibles so they can get the care and mental health support they deserve!
Your contribution will also help with out of pocket expenses so we can continue to spread awareness of this incredibly important topic and we can help to support those who serve and protect us. We are working with the medical community which will offer different services to help with mental health such as Brain Mapping. This comprehensive care can help with PTSD, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, ADD/ADHD, addiction, chronic pain, concussion/head injuries, memory issues, OCD, Sleep Issues and Preventive Health Care. We Thank You in advance for your donation and helping us put our First Responders First! May God Bless You.
