Clifford Beers Society

The Clifford Beers Society honors Mental Health America's most ardent supporters.

"I must fight in the open." Clifford Beers, in 1909, used those words to respond to those critics who suggested he start his consumer movement anonymously. Over 100 years later, his legacy still guides the way as Mental Health America strives to eliminate the stigma related to mental health, provide the advocacy to ensure the civil rights of people with mental conditions are protected, and the services needed are available to everyone.

Mental Health America has created the Clifford Beers Society to honor the multi-year, unrestricted giving of our most ardent and committed supporters, both individuals and organizations. We invite you to help lead Mental Health America, and the mental health movement, by becoming a member of the Clifford Beers Society.

The Clifford Beers Society represents the nationwide Mental Health America family. As a member, you are encouraged to split your gift with the MHA affiliate in your community. Your support will allow our important work to continue.

Membership in the Clifford Beers Society is tiered by contribution amount. Please note that bequests require a copy an irrevocable instrument to qualify for Clifford Beers Society membership (trust, charitable lead, remainder trust, etc.)
