Our education programs provide the tools, awareness and coping skills needed to overcome the challenges faced by people and families affected by mental illness.
We offer support groups facilitated by trained family members and individuals who have firsthand experience coping with mental illness.
We strive to end discrimination and stigma for all those persons affected by mental illness through broader education and collaboration with the whole community.
We advocate for the rights of those living with mental illness and their families on the local, state and national levels, striving to raise awareness of mental health issues and improve access to quality care.
