Donations help fund vocational training to help one person with a mental illness achieve and maintain steady employment and self-sufficiency

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to PLAN of North Texas. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide email address upon purchase. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: High Unemployment for People with Mental Illness

Individuals with psychiatric disabilities face an unemployment rate that ranges between 85 and 92 percent. Even if individuals with psychiatric disabilities want to obtain competitive employment, many rehabilitation programs do not have the vocational services necessary to train them for even entry-level positions.

The Campaign: Vocational Training to Support Recovery

If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then PLAN of North Texas can fund eight hours of vocational training for one person with a severe mental illness. Each additional $50 raised can fund another hour of vocational training for an individual with a mental illness. The vocational program aims to help participants recover from symptoms of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and clinical depression with purpose-oriented activities and supported employment. Job coaching and work-readiness training can also help vocational-program participants find stable employment and achieve self-sufficiency.
