Review for Gilead Community Services, Inc., Middletown, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Gilead’s mission is “…to provide a broad range of high quality health care and recovery support services in the home and community to improve mental health, physical well being, independence, and community integration for the individuals we serve.”
The recent news regarding Jesse Jackson Jr's hospitalization and Patrick Kennedy's support for him has brought to light the need to stress the importance of Mental Health issues and to treat them as equally important to any “health disease – cancer, heart condition, diabetes…” and as such should receive the same support and awareness with respect to funding and treatment.
Gilead has been a strong advocate and provider of a full range of treatment programs and services for those dealing with mental health issues, as well as to the families that have to live with these issues every day. The needs are great, but only through understanding and support, such as the programs and education provided by Gilead can we help all who are facing these issues with support and compassion who otherwise would be unnoticed, misunderstood and unattended to.
