Vincent House has served over 1,225 members, but more need your help.

In Florida, over half of adults with a mental illness are going untreated.

Your donation will help us to fulfill the needs of those in your community who are facing daily challenges with mental health.

The myths that generate negative stigma around mental illness, and the lack of funding, stand in the way of the life saving help many people need.
