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

2021 Goals:

The Center for Life Management (CLM) is a nonprofit community mental health organization serving southern New Hampshire for over fifty years. 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.

In 2021, we are focused on increasing access to mental health care especially as we experience an increase in the need for mental health services brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Our commitment to broaden our approach to whole person healthcare for persons with co-occurring mental and physical health conditions continues with our newest initiative, “Healthy Together,” delivered in partnership with Lamprey Health Care.

Charitable gifts and foundation funding are purposefully used to help those in need. Last year, 5,076 individuals received care: 1,571 children and teens and 3,505 adults. The need for CLM to partner with donors and funders is essential if our communities are to be healthy and successful.

Fundraising Events:

CLM’s Annual Benefit Concert and Silent Auction has become a signature event for the Center for Life Management 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 Broken Arrow took to the stage at the Tupelo Drive-In Music Hall in Derry. Our 13th annual event will be held July 16, 2021.

Giving Opportunities:

Our donors and funders are a vital partnership. With their financial support, CLM provides charitable and subsidized mental health care to those in need. There are many opportunities to help make a positive impact on the lives of those who are challenged by mental illness: private donations, through our annual appeal, NH Gives campaign and legacy gifts;  sponsorships, with the success of our annual benefit due in large part to the support of returning and new sponsors; in-kind donations, with items donated to our annual silent auction greatly appreciated each year; and online giving on our website, which is the most convenient way to donate in memory or in honor of someone special. All donations are greatly appreciated and acknowledged.
