Mental illnesses are brain disorders that are biologically based medical problems. Untreated, they can cause severe disturbances in thinking, feeling and relating. This results in substantially diminished capacity for dealing with the ordinary demands of life. Mental illness can affect persons of any age and occur in any family. They are not caused by bad parenting and not evidence of weakness of character.


We envision a world in which all people affected by mental illness experience resiliency, recovery and wellness.


  • Educate the public about mental illness.
  • Advocate for a comprehensive mental health system that provides effective and timely services for those struggling with mental health.
  • Support those with mental illness, their loved ones and providers.
