Mental Health needs community support

ASCEND works to elevate awareness of mental health through special events and activities.  Some projects are one-time-only and a collaboration among many mental health groups such as the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill – North Country, Liberty House, and the Behavioral Health Department of the Glens Falls Hospital.  Other activities are scheduled annually to raise funds for existing programs in addition to awareness.  Building the best event requires corporate partnerships.

Through annual underwriting, companies and ASCEND can plan more efficiently and effectively.  Continuity of support enhances community awareness and connection to mental health activities… and the companies who support them.



Join us here on the internet.  Our site was designed and is managed by an external agency and includes information about us and others in our community who care about mental health.  Information is changed frequently to encourage regular visits.  Links to your site will be provided plus other benefits.
