I hope there are people out there that will financially help the Mental Health Association. Just the other day, the MHA found a mattress for me and my significant other. The Gray Mill donated it to us. We had been sleeping on the floor for what seemed like a very long time. People who have money, beds, rides and clothing hardly ever think about people like us.
It’s not that we don’t want all of the things people have; it’s just that we have mental illness and only get so much each month to live on. For as long as I have been around, the Mental Health have helped us with all kinds of different things.
When the end of the month comes and we don’t have any money or food, they make sure we have something. You might question why we don’t go to the Salvation Army or Emmaus. We do. We can only go once a month. We are very thankful for what we get, but sometimes it’s not enough. It’s hard to be hungry. It’s hard to be broke. But most of all, it would be terrible to be without the Mental Health Association.
