Adults living with mental illness can have productive, fulfilling lives when maintaining a consistent balance of therapy and medication. Some patients cannot afford the copay or deductible required to obtain their medicine and cannot maintain the medication needed to stay healthy. When someone dependent on medication to feel stable is forced to go without, the results can be devastating.
David William Andrew Homan faced his mental illness with courage and determination. He knew the impact that proper and consistent medication had on daily life. He was overwhelmed with compassion for his fellow patients at Metrocare who struggled to make the small copay required to obtain their medicine. David persuaded his mother to pay for other patients’ medicine, enabling those clients to carry on for another day. In his memory, David’s family established The David Homan Endowment Fund to provide financial assistance for clients at the Samuell Center unable to afford their medication.
