Programs: Our program addresses three major barriers preventing persons from receiving mental health care.

Transportation Barriers
Economic Barriers
Social Barriers

We begin by addressing the importance of mental health education in order to develop a supportive community for patients. Next, we provide transportation services for patients and their families to local clinics to receive consultation and treatment. We continue to work with patients throughout their treatment cycle and aid in reintegrating them into their communities through holistic treatment plans.

In order to effectively break down these barriers to care, MINDS stresses the importance of using existing resources. Through collaborative partnerships with local community leaders and institutions, we are able to use a higher portion of funding for direct programming and patient care..

Mission:

The MINDS Foundation has a persistent commitment to educating and providing resources to patients and families suffering from mental illness and neurological disorders.

Results:
• Directly educated 947 individuals via educational awareness camps
