Everyone should have access to mental health support. The Uyeno Foundation seeks to fund initiatives that promote positive mental health through prevention, intervention, treatment, and education. Here is a deeper look at each of our four focuses.
- Prevention fights the stigma of mental illness and reducing the incidence, prevalence, and recurrence of mental health disorders.
- Through access to mental health services despite income or ability to pay, the effects of mental illness could be assessed before they worsen.
- To see barriers removed for those facing a mental health crisis through counseling and other psychiatric services despite income limitations.
- To provide learning opportunities that can accelerate the recovery process for those suffering from a mental health crisis.
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. To learn more about the Uyeno Foundation and support the mission visit our website!
