Approximately 1 in 5 Americans suffer from mental disabilities, but less than a third receive treatment. This is due to the high costs of medical care, as mental disorders rank among the top 5 most costly medical conditions in the US.
By helping fund Healing Companions, Inc., you are helping save the lives of both people struggling with mental illness and dogs living in shelters.
Healing Companions, Inc., intends to provide lifelong support and Psychiatric Service Dogs (PSDs) for those who qualify under the American With Disabilities Act (ADA). Our support includes covering the costs of the dog’s vet care, training refreshers, and the costs of training a successor dog once the first dog is no longer capable of performing its service tasks.
There are many ways for you to help Healing Companions, Inc., help others. Whether it is donating, volunteering, or simply re-blogging or sharing one of our posts, any help is greatly appreciated.
