    For Immediate Help

    If you or someone you know is experiencing:

    • an overdose, call 9-1-1
    • a mental health crisis, call (520) 622-6000

    Mental health is part of our overall well-being, however, it it is often misunderstood, misrepresented, and stigmatized. This leads to fear and causes people to hide their mental health concerns, even preventing or delaying them from seeking help. Nearly half of all U.S. adults will experience at least one form of mental illness at some point in their lives, but only 41% of those will get the professional health care they need.

    Our Mission

    To emphasize and bring greater awareness to the most critical issues surrounding mental health, including suicide prevention and the drug overdose epidemic, by connecting vulnerable populations with available resources, responding to community-wide trends, and improving the overall health and education of the community.

    Our Vision

    A world, removed from all mental health stigma, where individuals empower each other and are banded together to put an end to preventable deaths associated with drug overdoses and suicides.
