To enhance the empowerment to individuals with Mental Health, Intellectual Disabilities and Autism.
One in four people across the United States is living with some degree of mental illness every day. These are your family members, friends, coworkers, teachers, sales clerks. You interact with them every day, in your regular routine. Most people don’t vocalize their illness, as they are ashamed and afraid of the stigma and discrimination that may occur, preventing them from taking advantage of services and supports that are available to them from agencies across the country.
4.6 million people are living with an intellectual disability every day. They too are subjected to discrimination and the stigma that deters them from vocalizing their condition and taking advantage of the resources that are available to them from agencies across the country.
