Over time, people with severe mental illness are pushed to marginalized and blighted geographic areas. While this pushing is not done intentionally, it is a natural outcome of the vicious cycle of poverty which can often times accompany the symptoms of mental illness and behavioral disorders.
As a community mental health center, Vera French strives to be where our clients need us. NMTC can be the critical funding source allowing community mental health centers to create the facilities and programs our clients need and deserve.
