THE MENTAL HEALTH COLLECTIVE COMMUNITY IS MOTIVATED BY TWO COMMON GOALS: CARING FOR OUR PATIENTS, AND ERADICATING THE STIGMA OF MENTAL ILLNESS.
The Mental Health Collective believes in uniting the efforts and expertise of our community to better the lives of those struggling with mental health issues. Our environment houses clinical leadership and patient care in an environment free of shame and stigma.
Our clinical team is a collaborative group of change makers in leadership roles supporting local nonprofits, hospitals, and other mental health related organizations. We believe in the importance of establishing relationships with reputable and ethical members of the mental health community so that best practices are at the forefront of all treatment protocols.
Our treatment team also believes in the power of giving back for our clients as well. We encourage all of our patients to participate in service projects grounded in purpose and meaning. Individuals are encouraged to continue their community relationships upon program completion when possible.
THE COLLECTIVE’S COMMITMENT
According to The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), approximately 1 in 5 Americans are affected by mental illness every year, and yet only 41% of those individuals receive any form of mental health services. Nearly $200 billion a year is lost in earnings as a result of mental health challenges. Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. We must all work together to discover innovative solutions to the burden of illness that so many of us face.
We believe it is our social responsibility to stand up in an effort to eliminate the shame and stigma often associated with mental illness, so that all individuals can access the care they need. We have joined with like minded organizations to share ideas, educate the community, donate time and energy, and raise funds towards such efforts.
To this end, The Collective pledges to donate a percentage of revenue to non-profits working towards treating and de-stigmatizing mental illness.
