WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to provide education, support and advocacy for individuals living with mental illness and their families.
We advocate for families, friends, and persons affected by or with major mental illness in the community, in treatment settings, armed services, and in jail.
We educate the community about major mental illness in order to promote understanding and help remove associated stigma and discrimination.
We work for funding of research, housing, and improvement of treatment modalities for persons with major mental illness.
