QUALITY OF LIFE: The YMCA is an ideal place to provide these much needed services in a non-threatening manner and to add the balance of body, mind, and spirit through exercise, support groups, and volunteer opportunities. Swizzy’s Cause provides support for a care coordinator on staff at the Y who collaborates with the available service providers (psychiatrists, counselors, mental health services) and provide a sense of purpose in the patient’s everyday life through programs and services. The fund provides financial assistance to individuals who are unable to afford Y membership. In a nutshell, people are at their best when they are healthy and have purpose. The program also educates the community about the effects of mental illness and strategies to make it easier for those with mental illness.
Your support is needed:
- Friends and Family of Jessica have already made contributions to the fund, however, more funds are needed to continue the program and sustain it over the long run.
- All money raised will go directly into the Jessica Sweitzer Memorial Fund to be used for supporting services mentioned above.
