Support Behavioral Health Initiatives in the St. Louis Region

In the U.S., 1 in 5 people live with a mental or behavioral health condition. More than half of U.S. adults with a mental illness don’t receive treatment due to access to care, cost, lack of health insurance, and so on.

SSM Health believes every person deserves access to compassionate, holistic care. It’s why we provide a transformational approach to behavioral health care and why our initiatives focus solely on providing stabilization and support to our region’s behavioral health patients.

SSM Health Foundation – St. Louis has been awarded a $1.28 million Challenge Grant from the Mabee Foundation to assist our efforts in providing innovative patient-centered care around behavioral health through the SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital Urgent Care and Clinic. In order to receive the Challenge Grant funds of $1,280,000 from the Mabee Foundation, we must raise an additional $1,522,901 by July 11, 2024.

The SSM Health SLU Hospital Urgent Care and Clinic will support SSM Health Behavioral Health programs and initiatives, including:

  • Long-acting injectables clinics to provide patients struggling with access to care with a consistent treatment schedule.
  • Clinics and resources tailored for behavioral health, including telehealth services and early intervention and prevention programs.

Your support will help change the lives of many in our region living with a behavioral health condition — a neighbor, family member, close friend, colleague, this list goes on. Make a gift to support SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital Urgent Care and Clinic.
