Mental health organisation, HopeWay, receives grant funding of $7500 by The Murgitroyd Foundation.

1 in 5 adults worldwide are struggling with a mental health condition. That equals about 50 million Americans; yet 27 million go untreated due to a number of factors: financial barriers, lack of mental health professionals, lack of proper diagnosis and social stigma. As an accredited nonprofit mental health treatment center in Charlotte, NC, HopeWay addresses the need for quality treatment through its mission of excellence, education and financial accessibility.

HopeWay treats over 800 people a year across all levels of care. An integrated holistic model that incorporates medication management, individual psychiatry and psychotherapy, and group therapy such as art, music, horticulture, nutritional wellness, meditation and yoga, HopeWay fills the gap in mental health treatment between acute hospitalization and traditional outpatient
services. It is rare to find this broad of a continuum available under one organization and HopeWay’s outcomes data prove that their model leads most clients to a sustainable recovery, thus improving their life and the lives of the people they live and work with.

HopeWay relies on philanthropy to make every aspect of their treatment program possible. The Murgitroyd Foundation grant made treatment possible for clients like Amanda. After finding HopeWay’s program with help from her psychologist, Amanda was admitted to the residential program to address her depression and anxiety that had become unbearable. She lives by
herself with limited support and no financial help, but her insurance plan would pay for 100% of services as long as they deemed it medically necessary. After spending 28 days in the program and making tremendous progress, she received news that her insurance company had made an error and her benefits had ended. Her psychiatrist and treatment team at HopeWay knew she
was not ready to discharge. Through financial assistance, HopeWay was able to cover the physician-recommended two additional days in residential and another two weeks in one of the day programs. Having the ability to keep a client in treatment for longer periods of time is a game-changer in the work towards sustainable recovery.
