Friends of Loudoun Mental Health

Mission

The mission of Friends of Loudoun Mental Health is to drive back the darkness afflicting so many of our fellow citizens in Loudoun County. We are a volunteer driven, community based, non-profit organization that helps those suffering from mental illness better their lives by providing assistance for living arrangements, advocating on their behalf for improved care and resources, and promoting recovery and community awareness.

Profile

Since 1955, Friends of Loudoun Mental Health has had a long and sustaining impact in Loudoun County.  From its inception, Friends’ approach to dealing with mental health issues has been multidimensional: from direct assistance, community awareness and championing mental health legislation.  There are few areas of mental health that Friends has not touched. 

 

Our direct assistance programs include:

  • A Place To Call Home: a homelessness prevention program.
  • A Helping Hand: a one-time stipend for housing-related bills.
  • Representative Payee: volunteers manage the finances of those disabled by mental illness.
  • Friends Being Friends: fun social opportunities for people living with mental illness.
  • Hike With Hope: a program to affirm the importance of knowing about and understanding mental illness.
  • Suicide Loss Support Group: a monthly meeting/support group.
  • Suicide Bereavement 4 Teens: a young adult support group.
  • Mental Health Awareness Month: in collaboration with the Loudoun County Public Library, includes a month-long focus on programing about mental health issues.

Friends of Loudoun Mental Health has a sustaining impact through community awareness activities.  We have strong relationships with local church and community groups where we participate in resource fairs and other community outreach.  We also educate the public about resources such as the Loudoun County Sheriff’s CIT Access Center, LINC and PATH. 

 

Friends of Loudoun Mental Health believes in making governmental resources available on many levels including increased availability for mental health treatment.  We have relationships with local and state government agencies and elected officials who we meet with to encourage and impact this platform.
