Center for Life Management

Mental Health is as Crucial as Physical Health to Well-Being


2019 Goals:

The Center for Life Management (CLM) is a nonprofit community mental health organization that recently celebrated our 50th anniversary serving southern New Hampshire. CLM provides comprehensive, evidence-based mental health and substance use treatment services, psychiatric medical services, comprehensive clinical counseling and community support services as well as 24/7 psychiatric emergency services. Last year, CLM served more than 5,200 people including children, adolescents, adults and seniors. In 2019, we are focused on broadening our approach to whole person healthcare for persons with co-occurring mental and physical health conditions. Funding will help support whole person wellness programming for uninsured children, youth and adults; expansion of services for veterans, military members and their families and other initiatives.

Fundraising Events:

CLM’s Annual Benefit Concert and Silent Auction has become a signature event for the CLM Foundation serving as both a community awareness building and fundraising event. This annual event has over the years featured a diverse list of artists including New Hampshire’s own Matt Savage, Grammy award winner Paula Cole, Livingston Taylor and this past year Changes in Latitudes took to the stage at the Tupelo Music Hall in Derry. Our 11th annual event will be held July 19, 2019.

Giving Opportunities:

CLM seeks the support of individuals and businesses to help make a positive impact on the lives of those who are challenged by mental illness. There are a variety of ways to help CLM fulfill our mission of changing lives and saving lives. Private donations — through our annual appeal as well as the NH Day of Giving campaign. Sponsorships — the success of our annual benefit is due in large part to the support of returning and new sponsors. In-kind donations — items donated to our annual silent auction are greatly appreciated each year. Online giving — visiting our website is perhaps the most convenient way to make a donation that may be made in memory or in honor of someone special. All donations are greatly appreciated and acknowledged on our website and in our annual report.
