Mental Illness has no boundaries. Socioeconomic, gender, demographic…it affects us all. Once a terrifying diagnoses, mental illness is now a condition from which people recover and go on to live vital, thriving lives.
While 1 in 4 adults will experience a serious mental disturbance in their thoughts, feelings and ability to cope during their lifetime, only 30% of them will actually seek and carry through with treatment.
Today, please support those in our community who are seeking treatment and wanting to better their lives. Last year, we helped more than 16,000 people! Please join us in giving hope to more lives this Holiday season by contributing to the Mental Health Association in Greensboro.

A Story of Hope: Anne experienced frequent psychiatric hospitalizations over the past three years. Her symptoms were so severe she was unable to work and lost many friends and supports in her life. Each time she left the hospital she returned to a life of isolation and hopelessness, feeling frustrated and afraid. Prior to her most recent discharge from hospital, Anne heard about the Mental Health Association’s Peer Mentoring and Wellness Academy programs. Anne reports she has learned skills to manage her symptoms at the Wellness Academy and her peer mentor has helped her apply those tools. Since participating in our programs, Anne confirms a reduction in her symptoms, has not had to utilize inpatient services in 12 months, and is thriving in her part-time job!
