The #therapyiscool mental health action campaign is taking a trip to Chicago, IL in support of community efforts to make mental health treatment more accessible for people with mental illnesses and substance use disorders.
Proceeds from the purchases of #therapyiscool tote bags during the month of March will be donated to Thresholds.
Below is a little information provided by our friends at Thresholds :
① Name of the organization: Thresholds
② Founded in: 1959
③ Services provided: Thresholds provides a comprehensive array of clinical services for people with severe mental illness. Our members have access to case management, psychiatric care, group and individual therapy, as well as the evidence-based practices of Wellness Management and Recovery and Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment. Members have access to support networks that include social workers, case managers, psychiatrists, therapists, and nurse practitioners, creating a holistic approach to recovery not available with most community mental health providers.
④ Population served: Thresholds offers clinical, housing, outreach, education, and employment services to numerous special populations, including veterans, the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, those re-entering society after incarceration, and new mothers and youth. In addition, Thresholds offers peer-to-peer services, teaming professionals who are in recovery themselves with other Thresholds members.
⑤How does Thresholds use their donated funds: Donations go to support Thresholds 30 programs at more than 100 locations throughout Chicago, the adjacent suburbs, and nine surrounding counties.
