At Easterseals, we see the whole you, and we know just how important it is to be seen. This Mental Health Awareness Month, we encourage you to look around and look within. From the neighborhood you live in to your genetic makeup, many factors come into play when it comes to mental health. That's why we're enriching education, enhancing health, expanding employment, and elevating community so that the people with disabilities that we support are fulfilled in every aspect of their lives.

According to the CDC, people with disabilities report feeling frequent mental distress almost five times more often than people without disabilities. You can help more people than ever access support in their life by starting a fundraiser for Mental Health Awareness Month or contributing today. Your generosity helps people across Illinois, Kansas, and Missouri access programs designed to support them in every aspect of their lives.
