Drive for Mental Health Bags


We’re so grateful for the amazing Donna Burgess and her time with us as she shared her family’s personal story of mental illness this week at our H.I.V.E. Brown Bag.

In honor of Donna, H.I.V.E. has committed to making 25 mental health bags for JBS (Jefferson/Blount/St. Clair) Mental Health Authority, which provides individualized mental health services to youth and adults in a manner that encourages resilience and wellness. These bags will be delivered to JBS for distribution to individuals moving from hospitals to group homes. Please click here to see how you can help!

Please join us as the amazing Donna Burgess shares her personal story of mental illness in her son and family through the harsh years of onset, the struggle of acceptance and the “new normal” of recovery. Through her experience, strength and hope you are invited to a new awareness and understanding of mental illness and the urgent need to erase stigma and misunderstanding. Your presence, interest and concern are a sign of healing and hope to those who live with mental illness and those who love and care for them.
