Celebration of Lights Tree-Lighting Events at Fargo and Jamestown

celebration of lights tree



The Celebration of Lights trees in Fargo and Jamestown offer a unique way to honor a family member, friend or loved one and help your community at the same time.

The Tree of Hope serves as a beacon of light to help erase the stigma of mental illness and also reminds us of the need for continued advocacy for children and adults with mental health needs and their families.  Your participation will support the work of Mental Health America of ND (MHAND) and ND Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health (NDFFCMH) to promote mental health and wellness for children and adults to build healthier and stronger communities throughout North Dakota.

When you purchase a light or multiple lights on the Celebration of Lights trees, each person you honor will receive a personal card recognizing your gift.  You can also purchase lights as a memorial for someone to honor their memory. 

Honoring others is a wonderful way to start your holiday season in the spirit of sharing and caring.

The tree-lighting ceremony in Fargo will be December 13, 2016 at 4:30 pm at the West Acres Shopping Mall (East of the main entrance).  Representative Kathy Hogan, Senator Judy Lee and Nancy McKenzie will light the tree.

The tree-lighting ceremony in Jamestown will be December 19, 2016 at 6:30 pm in the Lahaug Gym on the campus of the North Dakota State Hospital.

The tree-lighting ceremony in Bismarck has been cancelled this year due to the weather.  If you are in Fargo or Jamestown (see dates above) please join us there for the tree-lighting.

Measure 4 supporters meet to discuss mental health issues in ND

MEASURE-4
 
By Anthony Humes | KFYR-TV
Posted: Oct 27, 2016
 

BISMARCK, N.D. - Measure 4 has been one of the most contested measure this election cycle. Thursday, the group proposing the measure, Raise it for Health ND, held a press conference to discuss the state's mental and behavioral health, and the programs they say are needed to address the issues.

Supporters of the bill Kurt Snyder and Carlotta McCleary, Executive Director for Heartview Foundation and Mental Health America of North Dakota talked about the Schulte Report that researched the problems the mental health system is facing in North Dakota.

"They're in a crisis. We were in a crisis back in 2014, according to the Renee Schulte Report and now with those further budget cuts, I think it's more of a crisis. It's really a desperate situation out there," says McCleary.

The ballot measure states that 50 percent of all new tax revenue collected must be deposited into the Community Health Trust Fund. Seventy percent of that must be used for mental and behavioral health, 20 percent must go to public health clinics across the state and 10 percent must be used to fund chronic disease research and treatment.
