Mental Health: Organizations

Curious or looking to get involved with mental health organizations?

There are many organizations that advocate for mental health and suicide prevention, some based here in the Lehigh Valley.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance, hope, and support. It unites our communities and provides an opportunity to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental health conditions have affected our lives and the lives of those we love and care about.

NAMI Lehigh Valley is an organization of families, friends and individuals whose lives have been affected by mental illness. Together, we advocate for better lives for those individuals who have a mental illness.

THE GREEN BANDANA PROJECT is a program dedicated to preventing suicide through promoting help-seeking behavior and increasing awareness of vital mental health resources. After a short orientation and basic suicide prevention training, student participants can proudly attach or display a lime-green bandana on their backpack, bag, or person, signifying they have pledged to be a safe individual to approach for mental health and suicide prevention information and resources.

Active Minds is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization promoting mental health awareness and education for young adults.
