Mental Health Guild
December 2018 Brunch & Lunch

Helping Arizona children and adults with a mental illness since 1964, the Mental Health Guild hopes we can continue to count on you. Did you know that MHG has never paid for staff or offices? That means 100% of your funds go directly to completing our important mission to collaborate and support programs to improve the lives of individuals impacted by mental illness. Attached you will see all the services MHG provides and programs we were able to support thanks to your annual membership dues, generous donations and by attending our events, such as our Annual Meeting, Lunch and Learn programs, and Cherished Hearts Bunco.

May is recognized as Mental Health Month and the first week of October is designated as Mental Illness Awareness Week. It's an ideal time to break the silence and stigma that often surrounds the topic. Help stop the whispering by speaking up about mental illness to your friends, coworkers, and legislators. And it's also an opportunity to show your support to MHG by becoming or renewing your membership and commitment to making a difference in our community.

Please join us and make a difference. Mail your check to either address below or you can pay your dues online by card thru PayPal, using the DONATE button on this website. You can also indicate your desire to help in other ways. We would love to have you involved. Feel free to call either of us for more information.

Thanks again for caring!

Mental Health - Everybody Deserves It!
