OUR COMMUNITY IS MOTIVATED BY ONE COMMON GOAL, TO ERADICATE THE STIGMA OF MENTAL ILLNESS.
The Mental Health Collective is mission focused on uniting the efforts and expertise of our community to better the lives of those struggling with mental health issues. Through clinical leadership and client services, we intend to model a world free of judgment.
Our clinical team is a collaborative group of change makers in leadership roles supporting local nonprofits, community-based hospitals, and influential organizations. We believe in the importance of establishing relationships with the most accomplished members of the mental health community at large so that ethics and best practices are at the forefront of all treatment protocols.
Programming at The Collective mirrors acceptance and opportunity for our client population. Community service and leadership roles are made available for clients to further evolve personal growth through projects rooted in purpose. Individuals are encouraged to continue their connection with community upon program completion.
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 issues. Depression is the number one, leading cause of disability worldwide. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. The problem is significant.
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 people can access the care they need to free themselves of treatable mental health issues. We have joined with like minded organizations to share ideas, educate the community, donate time and energy, and raise funds towards this effort.
To this end, The Collective pledges to donate a percentage of revenue to non-profits working towards de-stigmatizing mental illness.
