Thank you Sponsors and Donors!

On Saturday, May 4, 2024, Pathways SMIS members and friends came together to celebrate our society. Our 14th annual Circle of Strength was a success! We raised over $40,000 to provide free programs for families and friends who need support. Those who want to understand how to best care and advocate for their loved one with a serious mental illness are now able to do so because of your generous donations. Thank you.

At the event, we presented a short feature, “Pathways to Hope for people who love people with a serious mental illness”. In the video, members of Pathways share their lived experiences, struggles and how the Pathways helped them overcome challenges. We have now made this video available online for you to watch and share with others.
