Mental Health & Autism Health Project Donate

Because it Feels good to give!

Who We Are

Mental Health and Insurance Project, Inc., is a California nonprofit public benefit corporation which qualifies for tax exemption as a section 501 (c) (3) entity. Our mission is to help families and people with mental health and ASDs get the treatment that they need so that they ultimately can reach their full potential.

What Your Donation Covers

We help families, providers, and other relevant parties secure health insurance coverage for interventions associated with autistic spectrum disorders and mental health conditions. We offer educational seminars and training to professionals, and provide advocacy services, workshops and free advice to families. Your donation helps to supplement our sliding scale program, pays staff to field questions from the public, allows us to offer services to low-income families, and helps with advocacy efforts to make sure existing laws which protect consumers stay in place.

With recent changes to the Federal Mental Health Parity Act and more states and employers offering behavioral therapies, more people are accessing mental health and autism treatments through their insurance. This brings a greater need for advice, assistance and support in obtaining services as well as making sure that providers, facilities, and families get paid.

With changes in the executive branch of our federal government and discussion of repealing Health Care Reform, now, more than ever, we must step up our advocacy efforts. Your donation covers increased advocacy with state and federal legislators, to make sure that consumer protections remain in place. Your donation also helps to pay to answer the many questions that we get every day via phone and e-mail, and provide assistance to low-income families.
