Mental Illness is emerging as the greatest social issue of this decade. The Chas Foundation is currently working together with local non-profits, government agencies, and families of those suffering to find solutions and provide better assistance . This is a critical step in figuring out how to navigate the mental health system because mental illness is the only disease without a protocol for treatment. Once all of these group meetings have taken place, a full report will be posted and the results will be displayed.
Over the past few weeks, our Executive Director has been on National Public Radio, , WVEC Channel 13 News, and a keynote speaker at the Civic Leadership Institute. The message is to push for public awareness and better services, erase the stigma, and tell a story that resonates with many, but is told by so few. Links are below to listen and watch in case you missed them.
If you or anyone in your family is going through challenges related to mental illness, please feel free to email or call us. We will do our very best to help you navigate the maze that is our mental health care system.
