May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to recognize the impact of mental illness on our friends, family and community. For people with a mental illness, the stress of even the simplest task can seem unbearable.

Mental Health Services at Bridgeport Hospital serves people of all ages, both inpatient and outpatient, at all levels of intensity. Our clients learn how to identify and implement positive approaches to coping with intense moods and emotions that inhibit them from making the most of their capabilities. Our goal is to keep families intact and help clients transition back to home and school. We work closely with families, doctors and social workers to help make this process safer, simpler and successful for all.

I hope you will consider making a gift this month to Mental Health Services. With your help, patients and families will find the help they’ve been searching for. Your support will have far reaching benefits for our patients and the community.
