Millions of Americans are affected by mental health conditions every year. According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, 1 in every 5 Americans experiences mental health conditions in a given year. Mental illness has touched everyone’s lives and this event brings together the mental health community for one night. Celebrating National Mental Health Month is a tradition for Project Return, and provides visitors with insight and education about mental health.
Project Return is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people experiencing mental illnesses through educational, vocational, and supportive housing services so that they may live productive and fulfilling lives in the community. The organization was first established in 1971 by Rhoda Zusman to address the needs of people with severe and persistent mental illness. Today, the organization continues to meet the needs of people with mental illnesses in our community by providing a continuum of services that help them to enhance their quality of life and achieve the life outcomes that they value. Members of Project Return gain computer skills, learn problem-solving techniques, acquire life skills, receive vocational training, establish friendships, and receive linkages to the mental health system in Tampa.
