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.
