Please donate to support Japan and Japanese suffering from mental illness

Love Japan & Its People
The Center for Japanese Mental Health is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity fulfilling an important role in helping Japanese people whose lives have been impacted by depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other life-altering mental illnesses brought upon by the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011, work-life imbalance, aging population, decades-long socio-economic stagnation, and other factors unique to Japanese culture.

This important work is supported largely by the support of generous donors who contribute to our annual capital campaign. This year’s goal is $300,000, which will allow the Center for Japanese Mental Health to continue providing much needed services to Japanese people who are in need of assistance in the United States and Japan. Without the continued support of generous donors like you, these needs will likely go unmet.

In order to continue making a difference in the lives of individuals affected by the work of the Center for Japanese Mental Health, it is vital for this year’s capital campaign to be a success. Can we count on you to make a donation to this important cause? By making a tax deductible donation to our capital campaign, you’ll be directly contributing to Japanese people struggling to cope with mental health issues. Additionally, you’ll be recognized for your generosity as a capital campaign supporter on the CJMH website and in the upcoming newsletter.

The Center for Japanese Mental Health is depending on your assistance and generosity. Please donate on the website or contact our fundraising staff to pledge your support. Please be assured that your contribution will be put to good use to provide help to Japanese individuals and families in need. Thank you for your consideration and continued support.

Warmest regards,
Miwa Hitsumoto
Executive Director
