About Us. We promote activities that develop public awareness, acceptance, and integration of the mentally ill.

Overview

The Bermuda Mental Health Foundation (BMHF) was founded in 1994 as a non-profit, all volunteer, private enterprise effort. The Foundation has never had any paid staff and negligible administrative expenses throughout the 20 years of its existence. BMHF has neither sought nor receives funding from the Bermuda Government. The Foundation works in partnership with Mid Atlantic Wellness Institute’s (MWI) outreach staff. BMHF has privately raised funding and acquired two properties which currently accommodate fifteen persons afflicted with Schizophrenia who are living in permanent, shared residential settings. The residents live independently but receive look-in support from assigned members of the MWI’s Community Health Service team. A third property was purchased in 2006, and the directors are hopeful that a new four-unit complex accommodating 16 persons will be built there soon. BHMF also actively addresses quality of life issues, to afford each person residing in the shared residences an opportunity to be self-sufficient and integrate themselves into the community.

We are very thankful to all of our current community partners and we are currently seeking more on island partners. We firmly believe that in order to achieve our set goals and objectives and to change that state of our mental health industry, it will take all of Bermuda’s help.
