Every year at holiday time, The Coast produces a Give Guide to help connect readers with worthy local charities. There are of course many, many charities dealing with a range of issues, and we encourage you to give the charities that feel right to you. But there has been a series of events this year—the tragic Raymond Taavel killing, the Amanda Todd suicide and, on the more positive side, the largest private donation ever made to support local health—have drawn our attention especially to charities specializing on mental health. In the pages that follow we highlight a few, and show how you can include them in your holiday charitable contributions.

  • There are levels of “comfortable” I can accept
  • Even $20 an hour isn’t enough
  • If you’re smart, that’s more than enough to get by
  • No one in our Capitalist society can ever truly be “comfortable” while chasing money
