My Grandfather passed earlier this month after over 50 years struggling with an awful mental illness. The medications and medical support that he got let him live a life he wouldn't have had - he raised a family, he kept a steady job, he filled the world around him with love. Even in his darkest times when he was hospitalized for his illness we still knew that there were professionals available to care for him. I want to help give that knowledge and support to other people in the world.
The International Medical Corps was recommended to me by a friend who works in Public Health because of their prioritization of Mental Health during their humanitarian work. When they're in an area to help it recover from a natural disaster, war, or other struggle, they go the extra distance beyond just giving food and medicine to also caring for those affected by mental illnesses and training health professionals in the area to recognize and treat mental illness after they are gone. I think that this is the best organization I can donate to in order to help humans fight mental illnesses. I'm setting aside this week to raise money for them and asking that you consider a donation to them as well.
Much love and support,
