Demonstrating God’s love and sharing the hope of Christ to individuals and families who are struggling against serious mental illness.
FOCUS ON THE 4%
Our organization works to serve people and their families who are battling the effects of serious mental illnesses like Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective, and Bipolar disorder with psychotic features. These are the individuals who fall through the current gaps in our nation's mental illness treatment system.
Approximately 40-50% of individuals with schizophrenia and bipolar have some form of Anosognosia, the inability to understand they have an illness. Anosognosia is not denial, shame, or a product of stigma. It is a biological condition that significantly hinders a person's ability to advocate for themselves. We work to give voice to this forgotten and marginalized population through advocacy, help, and supportive resources for local churches.
