Progress in 2013

Please help! The Mental Health Foundation continues to make strides as we pursue our mission to end stigma and encourage young people especially to seek the help they need. Our work makes a difference, one life at a time.

During the past year we’ve accomplished the following:

  • Strengthened our “It’s Okay to Talk About it” grant program supporting peer to peer programs aimed at helping young people confront mental health challenges – in just several years the program has grown and provided more than $100,000 in grant support; more importantly, these programs reached thousands of young people and truly helped change lives for the better;
  • Established a formal endowment fund to support future grant making;
  • Presented a highly successful August Evening in Saratoga honoring University at Albany president Robert, J. Jones and co-chaired by former New York First Lady Matilda Raffa Cuomo and First Lady of Saratoga Marylou Whitney and her husband, John Hendrickson.
