Giving a Helping Hand to Individuals & Families battling Serious Mental Illness
We are a Christ centered Non-profit organization dedicated to promoting life with dignity.
- Psalm 82
FOCUS ON THE 4%
Serious mental illness is an equal opportunity disability. It doesn't care what you look like, how old you are, where you go to school or work, what race or gender you are, or even what kind of car you drive. It unabashedly afflicts 4% of the population without bias or seeming end in sight.
Our organization advocates for people with 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.
Building Tomorrow Today
We dream big around here and our greatest dream is to open a home for people who have a serious mental illness. Until this becomes a reality, we continue to partner with other family members, community stakeholders, and state leaders to work on innovative housing solutions to meet the overwhelming need of this forgotten population.
