Mental Health Care & Compassion Fund

Choose an amount to donate


The Mental Health Care & Compassion Fund supports patients receiving mental health care and helps them overcome financial barriers during treatment. It can be used to help patients afford therapy and other services that are not covered by their health benefits and care-related expenses, such as childcare during appointments.

As a patient make trips to and from the hospital, costs like transportation and parking can also add up over time, so every little bit of financial assistance helps. Most importantly, the fund allows for a personalized, holistic approach to care that addresses each individual as a whole, including their physical, mental, and emotional well-being is integral to providing the highest level of care.

For those who experience a loss of income or increased expenses during treatment, the Mental Health Care & Compassion Fund can help them regain their health and independence, all while making their experience just a little bit easier.
