May is Mental Health Month. Though 1 in 5 people will experience mental illness in their lifetime, nearly two thirds will never seek treatment. Together we can help end stigma and educate the public on mental health issues.

Bergen Volunteers Cares about Mental Health
Successful Families encompasses mentoring programs for parents and at-risk youth. We are all affected by the things that happen to us on a daily basis, both the negative and the positive. The Mentoring Moms & Dads and Mentoring Youth programs provide access to solid support systems for those that need them. Mentees can build resilience that not only allows them to overcome obstacles, but also makes it easier to handle future challenges.
