Be a part of something bigger

Be the Rock

Please consider contributing to WellStone's capital campaign. Help those in mental health crisis by supporting Alabama's first 24/7 crisis center.

Why Support WellStone?

Because you care. You care about the one in five individuals who experience mental illness and substance use disorders (SUD). You care about their families. You care about local law enforcement personnel whose jails are overcrowded. You care about hospital Emergency Department workers who are already overwhelmed. And you care about completing the continuum of mental healthcare for adults in Madison County.

Because you care, we ask that you consider supporting the new crisis center for the WellStone Emergency Services (WES) team. Please "Be the Rock" for someone in need and help us build a foundation of compassion, connection and community for those in mental health and substance use crisis. 

Your gift, at any level, will strengthen our mission. Together, we can connect North Alabama children, adolescents and adults to health and well-being.

Why Support WES?

Here are a few reasons why your gift matters:

    Approximately 35% of
    Madison County jail
    inmates live with a mental
    illness.

More than 8,000 people are taken to our local Emergency Departments every year with mental health crises.

WES ensures that those in crisis receive the mental healthcare they need with the dignity they deserve. This also alleviates the burden of local law enforcement and emergency department personnel.

If it is a mental health crisis, there should be a mental health response…. This partnership has not only served to increase safety for these individuals and our officers, but is has diverted those in need of appropriate behavioral health services away from the criminal justice system."
