Over the weekend, #StigmaFighters joined together at Active Minds’ Annual DC Casino Night. This spectacular event would not be possible without the support of our dedicated sponsors, who are truly going all in to support college student mental health awareness.
I want to send a big thank you to the following Corporate & Individual for help making this event a reality:

This event would also not be possible without our dedicated Host Committee. Special thanks to these fine folks:

Since losing my friend to suicide, I’ve been particularly focused on mental health and in working toward a world where people do not have to suffer in silence.
Last month there was a Facebook post that received more than a million views. I noticed because it was posted by a nonprofit that I advise and it was an order of magnitude more views than usual.
What got all the attention?
The post featured an image with a single simple statement:
“Mental Health is Just as Important as Physical Health.”
The likes and the comments came pouring in. The statement resonated because it’s something that isn’t said or recognized enough.
Join us for an evening of fun and games, featuring event emcee Sarah Fraser of The Sarah, Ty, and Mel Show on DC’s 107.3! Attendees will enjoy cocktails, finger-foods, casino-style games, a silent auction and great prizes.

We’re incredibly grateful to our 2015 Casino Night sponsors — together, they have contributed $85,000 to Active Minds. That’s a huge fundraising milestone for us and we couldn’t be more thankful for their dedication to student mental health.
Meet our sponsors and join us in thanking them:
