Every single donation helps the Mental Illness Foundation to grow. Your contribution, whatever it is, is important because, combined with other donors, it enables the Foundation to offers Partners for Life: a depression awareness program aimed at educating and providing tools for teenagers, parents and school staff to identify the signs and symptoms of depression and the steps to direct a person in psychological distress to the right resources. Our program aims at an early problem-solving of teen depression: an illness that can lead to academic failure and even suicide. The Foundation also offers public conferences and referral services.
