Silence the Shame will host the third annual “A Brilliant Mind Gala” Sneaker Edition on Saturday, April 29, 2023, from 7 pm - 11 pm at the Westside Cultural Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia. This immersive experience of hope and healing in mental health will highlight people with mental challenges healing in public through recovery awareness. At the same time, we will interact with cocktails, dinner, dancing, and auction to raise funds for mental health programs and supports in our evening wear and sneakers. But we need your help! 

As the pandemic wanes, the mental health crisis continues to emerge.  The APA found that demand for anxiety and depression treatment remained high for the third consecutive year while demand for trauma treatment and substance use disorders has grown.  STS curates programming to increase mental health literacy and offer practical skills to improve mental health. With your support, we can expand into other underserved populations and communities to eliminate stigma and reduce suicide rates.  

Help STS achieve its fundraising goal by serving as a sponsor for this empowering event. Your gift will not only help empower and educate communities on mental health prevention, interventions, treatments, and recovery, but it will also help erase the stigma of mental illness in underserved populations. 

Thank You to Our Supporters
