When: Thursday, May 4, 2024
Where: Flourish, Atlanta, GA
Time: 7PM


We are thrilled to announce that our 4th annual A Brilliant Mind Gala & Awards Program will occur on Thursday, May 9, 2024, from 7:00 - 11:00 PM at the prestigious Flourish Atlanta. This extraordinary event aims to showcase individuals who have embarked on a journey of healing and recovery in the public eye, fostering a sense of hope and resilience in mental health. The evening will feature an immersive experience and offer opportunities for attendees to engage in cocktails, dinner, dancing, and an auction, all aimed at raising funds for mental health programs and resources. We encourage guests to dress in evening wear and sneakers, symbolizing the fusion of elegance and comfort in supporting mental well-being. 

Unfortunately, discussing mental health challenges and conditions has often been met with fear and negative perceptions. Approximately 1 in 5 adults experience mental illness in a year, yet less than half receive the necessary assistance. To empower individuals to seek the support they need, it is imperative to destigmatize conversations around mental health and promote greater awareness of wellness. Last year, we successfully engaged over 6,500 individuals in community discussions, fostering a sense of normalcy around mental health and promoting early intervention through increased mental health literacy. STS is dedicated to forging significant partnerships and creating opportunities to expand our mental health literacy programs. However, we cannot accomplish this without your support! 

Contributing to the Gala will enable us to continue offering vital programming to youth and adults in underserved communities, including conversation series, wellness seminars, and youth development activities. We kindly request your consideration in sponsoring the Gala, as your contribution will make a tremendous difference in our ability to plan and execute this event.

Thank You to Our Supporters
