Mental Disabilities

Millions of Americans have mental disabilities. But even with those disabilities, many of them are doing remarkable things — working, learning and fully participating in the lives of their families and communities. Much of this is possible through the support of groups who provide education, job training and placement, and see that their rights are protected. By offering financial support, volunteering with local organizations or becoming an advocate for those with mental disabilities, you create success for them, and for our communities.
