Dear friend,

 

Each year millions of Americans and American families struggle with mental health and addiction disorders. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) reports that nearly 1 in 5 U.S. adults live with a mental illness (57.8 million in 2022), including over 14.1 million with severe mental health disorders. The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that over 48.7 million American adults (aged 12 and older) battle a substance use disorder, up 143.5% from the 20 million previously reported by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) in 2020.

 

When looking at the reasons many people do not seek and/or receive

professional treatment for mental health and addiction disorders, two things immediately come to the forefront:

 

1. The stigma surrounding mental health and addiction disorders; and

2. The availability of professional services, specifically in rural and underserved communities.

 

By supporting the NBCC Foundation's scholarship and capacity-building programs, you can help bridge the gap in mental health services

for military veterans and underserved communities around the country and world.

 

I challenge all mental health counselors, counseling students, NBCC Fellows and stakeholders, supporters of the NBCC Foundation, and those who want to Ride with Us to contribute $8 to the NBCC Foundation as a part of the 8-for-8 Challenge.

It is my hope that those who contribute $8 (or more if you are able) will ask eight other people to contribute $8 and so on.

 

All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of donations directly support the NBCC Foundation's Scholarship Program, which provides much needed educational funds to future counselors committed to bringing mental health resources to military veterans and their families, and members of underserved communities in rural populations.

 

Please consider riding with me by supporting the 8-for-8 Challenge.

 

Thanks for riding with us to Anchorage, Alaska and back,

 

Dr. Robert A. Horne, NCC, ACS, LCMHC, LCAS, ICAADC
