Bringing all of the pieces together...
Suicide is the second leading cause of death from in people ages 10–35 years old. Mental illness continues to be the leading cause of disability than any other group of illnesses, including cancer and heart disease. Over 60% of Americans living with a mental illness never seek treatment. Our community is in a crisis and Big Heart has created a process that removes the burden of the illness from our clients, and strengthens the resources of our community.
Big Heart focuses on a system of care in which the client’s community serves as the primary provider for recovery and rehabilitation. We provide an environment where individuals struggling with mental illness can focus on their recovery.
Our care coordinators connect clients to housing, psychosocial day treatment, and primary care providers.
