Make an Impact

Mental illness is shockingly common, affecting approximately 1 in 4 Americans.

43.7 million Americans 18 and older experience some form of mental illness within their lifetime, regardless of age, race, gender, or socioeconomic status.

Additionally, it is estimated 22.2 million Americans age 12 or older require professional treatment for substance use disorders including illicit drugs, alcohol and prescription medication.

The public health, social, educational and economic impact on our community is pervasive.

Your donation of cash, goods, services, event sponsorship, corporate partnerships and bequests help Meridian build a healthier, happier and more productive community for us all. Choose from the Unrestricted Fund (our greatest need) or designate a specific program or service of your choice.
