Mental Health Starts with Me

The Broadlawns Advocate Circle initiated the Mental Health Starts With Me capital campaign to raise awareness and support for mental healthcare in Central Iowa.  This dedicated group of community leaders has established a campaign goal to raise $10 million in funding that will be directed towards renovating, modernizing and expanding the mental healthcare facilities at Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.  The campaign is already off to a great start, and the Broadlawns Advocate Circle would very much appreciate your support towards achieving our campaign goal.  Please click on the Our Cause link to find out more about the current mental healthcare needs in the Central Iowa community, and the About Us link to find out more about the Broadlawns Advocate Circle.  For more specific information about how the money raised will impact access to mental healthcare and the facilities at Broadlawns Medical Center, please click on Our Goal.   To make a gift in support of this important cause, please click on the Donate link.  Thank you very much for your consideration and for all of your support!
