Why We Care
MENTAL ILLNESS TOUCHES US ALL.
One in five American adults experiences a mental illness.
That’s nearly 44 million people. Here in North Carolina, that’s close to two million people.
The Foundation of Hope was formed by a family who knew that even those who don’t live with a mental illness can still suffer from one. That we need to change the conversation about these illnesses.
With adequate medication, therapy, and emotional support, mental illnesses are treatable.
And that’s where we come in.
