The end of our mission defines the population we have a desire to serve. The first segment we address are those moving toward mental health. One component of this would be those who are facing mental infirmities which fall along a continuum of severity. Some examples would be eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, anxiety, and mood disorders. Statistically these infirmities impact 1 out of 5 in our community. In Montgomery County there is a population of 537,559 so approximately 107,511 are facing these struggles. Each of these individuals have family and community around them that are also impacted. Yet mental health doesn’t stop with infirmities. The World Health Organization defines mental health as “a state of well being in which each and every individual realizes their own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, and can fruitfully make a contribution to their community. We all have times in our life where unexpected circumstances may interfere with this well being.
Mental health is something that impacts each and every one of us on this journey called life. The touchpoints may look different for each of us, but none of us are exempt. Mosaics has a heart to serve all those who are on a journey toward their own mental health and contribute to an environment that supports this in our community.
