Event description

Description

Mental Health America of Georgia is pleased to host our 3rd Annual Casino Night: Fight the Stigma silent auction and reception to help expand the conversation regarding mental health and wellness. On May 4, 2019, our Casino Night will be held at the Crowne Plaza located in midtown featuring our outstanding silent auction as well as authentic casino games (with play money), a DJ, dancefloor, and a buffet-style dinner.

A portion of the funds raised this year will go directly to our work in prevention and early intervention through our youth programs. According to the 2017 State of Mental Health Report by Mental Health America, 30% of Georgians experience severe depression. Last year, approximately 85,000 youth (12-17) experienced a major depressive episode (MDE) and 65.5% of those did NOT seek or receive treatment. Consequently, suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for Georgia’s youth, 15-24 years of age. Currently, there has been 31 reported youth suicides in the state so far. Suicide is 100% preventable and 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 children in our state healthy and safe and providing them with the opportunity to grow into healthy adults.
