A Letter from our President
Dear Donors, Volunteers and Friends,
May is Mental Health Awareness month and here in Chesapeake we’re celebrating the bravery of our clients. There are more than 50 million Americans who struggle with mental illness each year, less than 1/3 of those individuals seek help.
Our clients represent a stand against the fears and stigmas associated with mental illness. In our programs we provide psychiatric rehabilitation and residential counseling services to hundreds of men, women and youth throughout the Mid-Atlantic area. Many of our clients have faced job loss and homelessness due to their illness; our programs address these issues as well as provide linkages to community support services, medication and additional counseling services.
As our clients work hard to regain their self-sufficiency despite their illness our program staff, volunteers and donors like you have never been more important. We are committed to dispelling the stigmas associated with mental illness to allow more individuals to seek treatment without fear. You can help us by joining our email and mobile communities to help bring a voice to mental illness in our area. By joining, you let individuals in need know they have support. Share your stories on our blog and check in with us on social media for more ways you can answer the Call to Care.
As always, we thank you for your continued support and prayers. Together, we are all Called to Care™
Light and love with a heart filled with gratefulness,
Russell K. Snyder
