Meeting Needs in Anne Arundel County, MD

One in four Americans will experience a diagnosable mental illness in any given year, according to the National Institute for Mental Health (NIMH). For some, mental illness seriously limits participation in work, school, and other aspects of a full life in the community. The Day Program provides a welcoming and safe place for individuals to participate in healthy activities, learn how to manage symptoms, and move towards recovery.

Please consider a donation to the Day Program to cover the cost of community outings, supplies for the Visual Arts Program, journals or bus passes for so individuals who need services can access Day Program.
