Our entire community benefits when we connect those in need with mental health or substance use treatment, resources, and services that help them begin and stay on their recovery journey.
Now more than ever, we need to come together to strengthen mental health and substance use treatment, resources, and services for ourselves, our families, and our neighbors. United Way mobilizes nonprofits, government, businesses, and funders to support efforts that promote mental health, prevent substance misuse, and provide treatments and supports to foster recovery while ensuring equitable access and better outcomes.
