How Your Donation is Helping
Mental illness is something that resonates with everyone; yet, even to this day, it is still stigmatized in society. As of 2018, 19.1% of U.S. adults experienced mental illness in 2018 (47.6 million people). This represents 1 in 5 adults. Everyone has either suffered from or knows someone who suffers with a mental illness. In addition to the high percentage of those suffering from mental issues, more than half of them went untreated in the last year. This is where National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) comes in to aid. Aside from offering a plethora of resources to point people in the direction of getting help for those suffering from mental illnesses, they offer support groups, call centers, and other programs to directly help people through dilemmas. These resources are offered to the public for free, so people are welcomed to partake in programs without taking on the burden of costs that would contribute to more issues.

The Collaboration Project
Making sure your mental state is in stable health isn’t just a benefit to everyone, it’s a necessity. Just like other physical health precautions, keeping your mental health checked up is life-saving. This is something we’ve understood since starting back in 2016. It’s been on our agenda for a while to help alleviate some of the burdens people face when seeking help for mental illnesses and have been researching it for some time. After meeting with some of the supervisors and sitting in on a few of the support groups offered at NAMI, learning how they operate to offer services for those suffering, we wanted to contribute too. From October 5th to March 5th, we will be allocating 25% of our profits to NAMI in order to fund their call centers, support groups, outreach programs, and other services that they offer for free.
