Community Investment

The Community Mental Health Fund invests in quality of life for Jackson County residents. As a payer of last resort, local mental health funds make other resources go even farther. Mental health services for persons with chronic mental illness are accessible and responsive to the varied and unique needs of Jackson County residents. This is essential for the 16,000 persons who are served, their families, and for Jackson County.
