BENEFITING: SOUTH SHORE MENTAL HEALTH CENTER INC
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
South Shore Mental Health recognizes the importance of the commitment made by Bob Daley, SSMH Board Member, in support of the organization; with Bob's and the support of others like yourself we can meet the growing needs of those in the communities we serve.
South Shore Mental Health is among the leaders in mental health and early intervention services on the South Shore, Boston and Cape Cod.
We pride ourselves on our innovative, client driven approaches ensuring the highest quality of care. While we serve over 16,000 children, family and adults each year there are still many who do not access care due to stigma and lack of awareness of resources.
Only 25% of individuals with a diagnosable mental illness actually seek counseling from a mental health professional. SSMH reaches out to people where they are: schools, community sites and homes. As a result, the number of clients receiving counseling services has increased by 5000 over the past five years.
We also serve over 900 children and families annually in our Step One Early Intervention program. That is an increase of 35% over the past three years.
Thank you for your support.
