On November 20, 2011 Care Plus Foundation, in partnership with A.N.G.E.L Initiative hosted an incredible wine tasting fundraiser at Tosca Cucina Napoletana, located at 15 Church Street in Montclair. Wine was provided by Super Wine Warehouse in Paterson. The event was attended by over 150 supporters that came out to raise awareness about suicide prevention and support the valuable services that Care Plus NJ provides to our community at large. Through sponsorships and ticket sales, the event successfully raised over $6000!
Sabrina Coppola, Care Plus Foundation Executive Director stated, “The event was magical. The generosity of Bert Traficante and his team at Tosca was heartwarming greatly appreciated by the Care Plus Foundation, A.N.G.E.L Initiative and individuals and families that Care Plus NJ serves!”
Did you know that suicide is the third leading cause of death of young people ages 15 to 24 and the fourth leading cause of death for adults over 18. Depression and anxiety disorders are the most prevalent mental illnesses; each is estimated to affect more than 19 million people each year. While these statistics are clearly stunning, the good news is that with treatment, nearly all mental health issues can be improved.
Care Plus NJ is here to help! We provide comprehensive and recovery focused treatment for the 1 in 4 individuals in our community that are suffering from mental illness. This can include your family, friends and neighbors.
