Why Give

Mental illness affects almost everyone in some way, and today, one in four adults suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder. Sheppard Pratt Health System is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, dedicated to positively impacting the lives of children, adolescents, adults, and older adults who rely on us to help them with their mental health needs.

More than 80% of our patients and students rely on Medical Assistance to get the compassionate care they need to heal and return to their lives.

With your support, we are able to sustain our patient care, education, and research missions. Your donations are essential as we work to offer outstanding patient care, leading special education programs, cutting-edge research, and state-of-the-art facilities.

In making your gift to Sheppard Pratt Health System, you can be assured that it will be used to:

  • Provide the best possible care to every patient, each and every day.
  • Support children and adolescents requiring specialized education services.
  • Bolster research efforts, leading to new discoveries and better lives.
  • Offer hope to those whose lives have been marginalized.
  • Assist in providing charity care to those facing financial hardship.
  • Enhance technology, allowing us to provide better, more efficient care.
