How your donation makes a difference

In the 12-month period October 2013 – October 2014, we were able to leverage $8.26 in grant funding for every $1 contributed by individual donors. The end result? More people with mental illness and their families receiving education, support and empowerment programs, more civil society groups advocating for improved national mental health systems in low and middle income countries, and more people providing support to their own families. Thank you!
