The Empowerment Gala: 35 Years of Saving Lives Through Mental Health Education, Advocacy and Support
18 May 2019 – Enjoy an evening of celebration to raise awareness and funds for mental health education, support and advocacy in Washtenaw County.
Belonging to a mental health support group—where people listen with empathy, “get” where you’re coming from, and offer words of encouragement—can lighten the load of a mental illness.
At no cost to participants, we educate the community about serious mental illnesses, including treatments and management strategies, and how to navigate the health care system to access professional services.
Advocacy improves the lives of people living with brain disorders by improving mental health care systems and by changing values and attitudes, especially stigma and discrimination about mental illness.
