End The Stigma

Mental illness is something I have struggled with and continue to battle. However, I have an amazing support system who has shown me how loved I am and that it is possible to feel better, even if getting there feels like climbing a mountain. It is not something that can be cured with a simple prescription but it is something that should be looked at and handled with as much concern as a physical illness. Struggling with a mental illness is not something that one should be ashamed of or looked down upon for. I need your help to help me fight to end the stigma, one step at a time. 

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.
