Archive Virtual Charity Fair Featured Cause - MENTAL HEALTH

Welcome to our Virtual Charity Fair!

The NJECC is a 16-week campaign, taking place between September 15 – December 31 this year. During that time, we will feature 14 specific causes  a different cause each week  and will showcase those causes through our Virtual Charity Fair. Visit this page each week throughout the campaign to learn about a new cause and to connect with the NJECC charities addressing that cause. Did you miss one of our previous week's Virtual Charity Fairs? Click here to connect with charities from Environmental Protection Week, click here for Disaster Preparedeness, Relief, and Recovery charities, click here for Health & Research charities, click here for women and girls-focused charities, click here for arts and culture charities, click here for mental health charities, and click here for hunger charities.

Meet this week's featured charities:

Mental illnesses are common and treatable. People struggling with mental health may be in your family, live next door, teach your children, work in the next cubicle, sit in the same church pew, or perhaps you yourself are the one struggling with mental health. Unfortunately, only half of those affected receive treatment because of the stigma attached to mental health. Untreated, mental illness can contribute to higher medical expenses, poorer performance at school and work, fewer employment opportunities and increased risk of suicide.

If you care about supporting mental health, show that #NewJerseyGives by making your pledge to charities working in this cause area.

Featured below, you can "virtually" meet some of this year's NJECC charities who are addressing this cause. Click below on each charity to learn more about their work.
