With growing concern over the increase in stress, anxiety, depression and other mental health triggers, The Mental Illness and Kindness Endowment (MIKE) has partnered with Deas Consulting to help make a difference across Lake County. Joe Ziler, founder of the MIKE Endowment – named in memory of his brother, Mike Ziler, who committed suicide – has donated more than $40,000 through early 2023 to provide financial assistance to more than 600 local residents who have a need for immediate mental health counseling.
