Suicide in the US is at its highest rate in 28 years: five deaths and 125 attempts every hour.

90% of those who die by suicide have an underlying mental illness

The unemployment rate is at 4%, but 

         83% of Illinois adults receiving mental health treatment are unemployed

Approximately 21.5 million American adults annually struggle with substance addiction.

About 49% of substance addicts have co-occurring mental health and addiction disorders.

Over 10,000 people in Illinois alone are homeless on any given night

26% of homeless adults live with severe mental illness. 


There’s still time for you to make a difference in so many serious issues in your community by helping us address their root cause: mental illness. Donate to our Annual Appeal today and help us reach our goal of $20,000 by Dec. 31!
