Niagara Gazette — On average, people living with serious mental illness live 25 years less than the rest of the population. One reason is that less than one-third of adults and less than one-half of children with a diagnosed illness receive treatment.
Since the early 1970’s, Community Missions has been addressing this important public health issue by offering a variety of residential and community based programs for youth and adults with mental illness.
“As an agency committed to helping those with mental illness,” said Robyn Krueger, executive director, “our goal has been to not only help individuals and families struggling with mental illness directly, but also to reduce the stigma that exists around mental illness. We are all part of one community and the well-being of our neighbors should be a concern for all of us.”
