Providing Support and Services We know there are many misconceptions about how to best help family members understand and manage day-to-day challenges. We address many issues relating to mental health, including the impact on families, generational trauma due to racism, and the impact on kids and teens in school and at home dealing with mental health-related issues like poverty, hunger, homelessness, education, job loss, stigmas, and loneliness. This is the backbone of ensuring all families are thriving, getting served, or reaching for help and hope–no matter where you come from. We support all types of families, but we also know that families living in poverty often do not get the support they need. We are here to change that, one family at a time.
Our Mission: Step Up For Mental Health’s mission is to support, educate and provide services to empower families living with the challenges of mental health disorders. We do this by providing a safe place to share stories and find support for others who are dealing with mental health disorders or caring for a family member with a mental illness. We believe that mental health issues impact social issues, including education, homelessness, and poverty. Step Up For Mental Health® strives to match families with resources to help move them toward a more productive life.
