Time to get Charitable for Mental Health Support!

Friends For Mental Health "is a non-profit community organization that provides families and friends with the support, information and education they need to help them cope with a loved one’s mental illness."
This organization offers many services in regards to Mental Health support.
- Psychosocial Intervention
- Training of Mental Health supporters and volenteers
- Support Groups
- Information on Mental Health illnesses and support
- Youth support
This organization is extremely supportive of Mental Health illness, in fact it is their main drive. Considering 1 in 5 people suffer from mental illness this is not something that people should just dismiss or take lightly. It is important to take action and help supporters do what they do best and support. I'd highly recommend getting charitable whether it be by making a donation or by volenteering at a local Mental Health facility.
If getting charitable is something you might be interested in check out the links below.
As stated on the official Friends For Mental Health website, this organization is constantly on the lookout for volenteers. If you are fortunate enough to in the 4/5 of those who do not suffer from Mental Illness, take it upon yourself to give back by getting charitable this Holiday Season!!
