SCHENECTADY – Mohawk Opportunities, Inc. is on a mission to raise awareness about mental illness through education and transparency of their mission, according to the nonprofit group’s executive director.
“I think once that happens, people who feel the stigma can take the risk and engage in treatment because there’s more acceptance about it in the community,” said Steve Klein, the organization’s executive director, about the Schenectady-based organization that was founded in 1985. “If we can also raise funds through this from people who become sensitive and supportive of our mission, that would be great.”
