Supporting a World Class Treatment Facility

“Like many families, ours has been touched by mental illness. Today one in five individuals will struggle with mental illness during their lifetime, suicide rates are rising, yet most people don’t seek treatment because of the public stigma. As a family, we’ve decided to give to Skyland’s Cypress Society to address the societal challenges. Skyland Trail is a world-class treatment facility. Now they’re expanding into adolescent care. Skyland Trail is also a trailblazer in the area of outcome-based research and evidence-based treatment models. We believe a gift to Skyland’s Cypress Society helps ensure we’ll have an innovative psychiatric treatment center of excellence in our community.”
