EVERY PERSON MATTERS

The Uyeno Foundation envisions a community where mental health support services and educational tools for individuals and families are accessible and attainable for all.

Through funding initiatives that promote positive mental health through prevention, intervention, treatment, and education, we can move one step toward the vision of a community without barriers to access for mental health support services, regardless of income or ability to pay.

Through partnership with local boots on the ground organizations, the Uyeno Foundation provides grant funding to support the efforts of local mental health services in the Southwest Florida area.
