Sharing Gifts of HOPE.

Making a gift to Lindner Center of HOPE positively impacts the lives of individuals and families coping with the devastating effects of mental illness.

Mental illness ranks as one of the leading causes of disability in the world, with 2.5 times more Americans suffering from a major psychiatric disorder in their lifetime, compared with cancer, heart disease and diabetes COMBINED.

Though mental illness is highly treatable, one of the main reasons these illnesses go untreated is due to lack of access to care. Lindner Center of HOPE is a resource for excellent care, but can only exist with the support of generous donors.

There are many options available for individuals willing and able to support Lindner Center of HOPE.
