Help Us Help Others Make Mental Health Accessible and Affordable to ALL!!!

What we're all about

Serenity Foundation has declared May 2018 as the moment we take action towards helping people access services so they can begin to recover and improve their quality of life.  Our Mission is to raise money to help individuals afford to access mental heatlh treatment through providing financial assistance to those in need.

People want and need mental health counseling.  However, 70% of people needing mental health counseling, can't afford their health insurance deductibles and copays.  This often prevents them from accessing services that would decrease their symptoms that lead to suicide, gun violence, hospitalization, drug addiction, domestic violence and even death.
 
Health Insurance companies will not pay for mental health treatment until a person has met their Individual deductible and/or co-pay.  Individuals struggling with mental health issues need your help.

With your help we will be able to 
·  Assist individuals in making mental health affordable by providing financial assistance to cover up to 50% of co-pays and deductibles

· Advocate on the behalf of individuals with mental health and addictive disorders in accessing treatment

· Support the recruitment, training and on-boarding of qualified, culturally diversed, mental health therapists to improve accessibility of treatment 

Your Donation will provide support to 
Adolescents and Adults struggling with anger, anxiety,  depression, grief, addiction, relationship issues, sexual disorders, mood disorders and stress management. 

Families struggling with parenting, behavior management  and/or relationship issues

Individuals with Alcohol & Drug Addictions

Individuals who self identify as LGBTQ

Individuals who are Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing

Individuals with Developmental Disabilities

Individuals who are Spanish Speaking

This week Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade died from suicide. Depression affects everyone. National research shows that suicide rates are up 30% across the country and about 35% in Ohio. We need more mental health providers ... we need to help make mental health affordable and accessible to all. But we definitely need to eliminate the negative stigma that so many people have about treatment. "Asking for Help is a sign of Strength". Help us help others by donating to our Go Fund Me campaign so we can help people access services.
