Through your support, we can alleviate the impact of societal symptoms including suicide, homelessness, unemployment and substance abuse by addressing their common cause: debilitating mental illness.
Please support Independence Center’s 2018 Annual Appeal. Your contribution will help us beat the clock and raise $20,000 by December 31.
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!
