I have climbed many mountains in my life, but the most difficult one is the mental and emotional mountain I struggle to summit every day.  We each have unique individual experiences that are profoundly affected by our unseen emotional outlook. Mental health can color the world miraculous! But mental illness can conjure unimaginable challenges into existence. Without communicating—connecting—it it is impossible to know how your fellow man is feeling.  We must have human connections to lift us up over the boulders we encounter on our life’s path. Reaching out with a simple hello, or a smile, could light up the trail for someone who has lost their way. Talk therapy, cognitive exercises and medications can provide “trail gear” that enable us to reach higher emotional ground and see further than we could on our own. But the most important tools we use on our journey through life, the safety equipment, are the social links we create with the people around us.  One step up, and another, and another, and a hand held, and a foothold secured, and a reach further than you thought you could---you’re climbing! Please help us find more ways to help our fellow man to climb. Please consider donating to the Hike for Mental Health. The summit is glorious!

ABOUT 8th Annual Summit Mt Washington

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I chose to join the 8th Annual Summit Mt. Washington HIKE for Mental Health to raise funds for a great cause and reduce the stigma of mental illness.

HIKE for Mental Health is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded on the vision of a world in which everyone, including those who suffer mental illness, can find the simple joy of living.

Our mission is to alleviate the suffering of those afflicted by mental illness, eliminate the associated stigma, and to foster responsible use of wilderness trails.

As an all-volunteer organization, we distribute 100% of contributions raised by our hikers.

  • 80 cents from every dollar funds programs to alleviate the suffering of mental illness including scientific research to prevent, cure, and treat mental illness
  • 20 cents maintains and preserves wilderness trails

Your donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the IRS. Thank you for your support.
