Mental Health Month Challenge – May 2016

Community Mental Health Fund Challenge: Tom Buis, former Hancock County ADAMHS Board Chair, has challenged our community to contribute $5000 in donations to the Community Mental Health Fund during May 2016. If the $5000 goal is met by the end of the month, Mr. Buis will match the contributions with an additional $5000 gift! Let’s work together to build a legacy of hope for those struggling with mental illness.
