2021 Mental Health Awareness Month Fund
Every year in May, Mental Health Month provides a dedicated time to raise awareness about the realities of individuals living with mental illness and ways to manage and achieve mental wellness.The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health of people of all ages. In November 2020, the CDC reported that 44% of Americans were coping with either depression or anxiety. Now, more than ever, it is critical to reduce the stigma around mental health struggles -- because that stigma often prevents individuals from seeking help.
Bright Funds has established the 2021 Mental Health Awareness Month Fund composed of pre-vetted nonprofits committed to raising mental health awareness. Through a single tax deductible donation to the Fund, you will support a group of nonprofits that are providing direct services, doing research, and educating in order to challenge myths, biases, and discrimination about what mental health is - and what it is not.
