None of this is possible without your compassionate generosity.  Donations to Newport Mental Health’s Annual Fund support transformational, evidence-based care for your neighbors living in Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth, Tiverton, Little Compton, and Jamestown, regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. Together, we can expand our community of hope, treating not just the “problem” but the whole person. 

It gives me peace of mind to know there is a place I can get help by simply walking in or calling. I was paired with an NMH therapist who understood PTSD. She understood that I was interested in the arts and used art therapy to help me talk about traumatic events in my past.... NMH has a whole team working on my behalf. I'm so grateful.
