Board of Directors

Empire Mental Health Support is comprised of a group of people who either live with a mental illness or are family members of those living with a mental illness. We are an educational, advocacy, and support organization that serves the Sioux Empire area.

 

Our top priorities are to raise mental health awareness in our communities, work alongside the justice system, and build connections with lawmakers and leaders to work toward empathy and equal rights among our mentally ill citizens and their families.

“You don’t have to struggle in silence. You can be un-silent. You can live well with a mental health condition, as long as you open up to somebody about it, because it’s really important you share your experience with people so that you can get the help that you need.”

Demi Lovato
