Fight the Stigma Casino Night,

Atlanta, Georgia, United States Atlanta, Georgia, United States

  • About the event

    Mental Health America of Georgia is hosting our fourth annual silent auction and reception spotlighting our work that enhances the mental health of Georgians throughout the state.  On May 4, 2019 we are hosting our 3rd annual “Casino Night: Fight the Stigma,” featuring our outstanding silent auction as well as authentic casino games (with play money), a DJ, dancefloor, and a buffet-style dinner.

    Funds raised this year will go directly to our work in prevention and early intervention through our maternal, youth, and adult programs. Each year in the U. S., 57.7 million individuals have a diagnosable mental disorder, and a death by suicide happens every 16 minutes. We advocate for and provide mental health education that allows Georgians in all areas and sectors of the state to identify a potential mental health crisis and prevent it before it occurs, thus keeping adults and children in our state healthy, safe and out of harm’s way.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Community contributions such as yours enable MHA of Georgia to remain the state’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that all Georgians have access to early mental health intervention and treatments that work.  We believe there is no health without mental health, and through our programs we help Georgians to lead healthier, fuller lives.

    Thank you for your consideration and your dedication to mental health… after all, there is no health without mental health!
