Step Up For Mental Health’s mission is to support, educate and provide services to empower families living with the challenges of mental health disorders. We do this by providing a safe place to share stories and find support for others who are dealing with mental health disorders or caring for a family members with a mental illness. We believe that mental health issues impact social issues, including education, homelessness and poverty. Step Up For Mental Health strives to match families with resources to help move them toward a more productive life.
Our goals are to assist families in ways the whole family might need assistance. We are committed in helping meet the challenges families are facing with regards to peer and professional support and access to services.
We believe in #GivingForward as a idea on #GivingTuesday so one of our goals is to support families and individuals who are in a family shelter or living on the street until the end of the year.
#GivingTuesday this year kicks off our upcoming #GivingForward event where we will help individuals and families living on the street and in family shelters, get a basic needs or what we call Swag Bag! (toothbrush, blanket, socks, mouthwash, etc) Our goal is to hand out 25-50+ or more bags to men, women, and families with kids living on the street and families living in shelters until the end of the giving season of 2017. If you would like to help, donate to Step Up for Mental Health and help us reach out goals. I hope you'll consider contributing. Every little bit will help Step Up For Mental Health reach our goal.
