We spark hope and success

People with mental illness can and do recover. Studies show that most people with mental illness get better, and many recover completely.

Our Mission

Mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia are more widespread than most people realize. According to SAMHSA, in 2005 there were an estimated 24.6 million adults age 18 or older who experienced serious psychological distress (SPD), which is highly correlated with serious mental illness. Almost every family in America is affected by someone with mental illness.
