Mental Health Care does not get the attention it so desperately needs. Often we hear that the barriers far outweigh the growing need. This is something we are working to improve.

Make Change for a Dollar” is a fundraising effort to provide much needed mental health services for people who otherwise wouldn’t have access to it. Everyone. Fully or partially subsidized appointments. Everyday.

We also offer pro-bono counselling sessions. Everyday.

Gentle Path can’t offer these low or no-cost options without grants, fundraisers and generous donors.

We are asking you to consider a gift to Gentle Path’s “Make Change for a Dollar” fundraising drive. You aren’t giving money – you are giving accessibility to someone who needs it. Full or partial gifts are greatly appreciated right now.
