One in five adults in America experiences mental illness in a given year. Here in Howard County and across America, there remains a significant need for better access to mental health services. The Horizon Foundation is making a major commitment and financial investment in family mental health and wellness in the county. This includes working closely with partners to expand access to mental health services, especially for children, increasing awareness about mental health issues and resources and encouraging community members to provide emotional support to support each others’ mental wellness.

You can learn more about our work by checking out our Emotional Support Human campaign, Mental Health Film Festival and Mental Health Matters Coalition.
