WHY DOES MENTAL HEALTH EDUCATION MATTER?
We believe that every person has a right, and a need, to have healthy life skills and be resilient. We have a responsibility to prepare our community by helping our men, women and young adults who often don't get the help that they desperately need. We can do that by starting with a strong mindset to cope with life. Right now, the numbers show that we, as a society, are failing in that responsibility. According to ABC News, in their article http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2012/01/19/1-in-5-americans-suffer-from-mental-illness/, 1 in 5 Americans Suffers From Mental Illness such as depression, panic and anxiety attacks and other forms of life struggles that bring people down.
WHY GIVE TO MIRAKLES?
Through Mirakles, we've been working to solve these problems since 2011. But, we need your help because, despite our progress, there are big challenges left to face.
Not all men, women and young adults know about or have access to Mirakles' services. Our goal is to cultivate a sense of wisdom for mental health education for within our society. To coach people everywhere, we need to be everywhere. We need to be able to do more community outreach.
Empower low income and homeless men, women and young adults with the proper mental health education tools and skills through teaching, mentoring and education skills that are evidence and scientifically proven to work!
With YOUR help, we will be able to make the Mirakles' teaching and coaching skills available to more people in need.
Together, we can coach, teach, mentor and educate people on HOW to have a Healthy Mindset!
When people know HOW to have a strong mindset through coaching, teaching, mentoring and education, EVERYONE benefits because this results in more a THRIVING and STRONGER ECONOMY as wells as STRENGTHENED families and individuals. And overall, a more RESILIENT COMMUNITY!
We can make sure that 100’s of people learn to make wiser choices at home, at work, and in life in general. But, we can’t do it without you. That's why we hope you’ll join us in making a difference!

This article further said that anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only about one-third of those suffering receive treatment. Mirakles offer scientifically and evidence based proven skills and tools to make people better through education and empowering tools.
Anxiety disorders cost the U.S. more than $42 billion a year, almost one-third of the country's $148 billion total mental health bill, according to "The Economic Burden of Anxiety Disorders," a study commissioned by ADAA (The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 60(7), July 1999). More than $22.84 billion of those costs are associated with the repeated use of health care services; people with anxiety disorders seek relief for symptoms that mimic physical illnesses.
Furthermore, the Huffington Post wrote in their article http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/20/depression-statistics_n_6480412.html the following: Depression has a way of tricking even the happiest of people into thinking that life isn’t worth experiencing. Their energy is evaporated, what once was pleasurable is now less-than appealing and the physical symptoms are completely taxing.
Sounds pretty terrible, right? While many people consider mental illness in the abstract — an affliction outside the realm of possibility in their own lives — the sad reality is that these disorders are distressingly common. The article provided the following statistics that show depression has a greater impact than you might think.
350,000,000 The number of people globally who are affected by some form of depression.
11% The percentage of adolescents who have a depressive disorder by the age of 18.
16,000,000 The estimated number of U.S. adults who had at least one major depressive episode 2012. This made up approximately 6.9 percent of all adults in the country.
14% The percentage of women from a 2013 postpartum depression study who had the disorder four to six weeks after giving birth.
30% The number of college students who reported feeling depressed, which disrupted their ability to function in school.
$80,000,000,000 The estimated annual cost of depression in the U.S. due to lost productivity and health care.
50% The percentage of Americans with major depression who don’t seek treatment for the mental illness.
10% The estimated number of American adults age 65 and older who have a diagnosable depressive disorder.
