It was a wonderful evening to celebrate the remarkable efforts in the area of treatment and recovery for mental illness. All proceeds from the event support the mission-driven work of our Affiliate which hosts education programs, facilitates support groups, provides mental health trainings, advocates for access to services, and offers a compassionate place to turn for thousands in our community living with and/or impacted by mental illness.
