Community Health

In every program and initiative we back, we focus on the pressure points of community mental health, reaching as many people as possible by connecting with them where they learn, work, live and pray.

Community

Where You Live

Our community-based programs reach underserved groups through their faith leaders, medical students in their local schools, and local mental health experts and organizations. Our impact is amplified when we partner with community leaders and support local mental health education initiatives, allowing us to be a national organization with a finger on the pulse of local community mental health.
