One in five Americans will cope with mental illness during their lifetime, according to NAMI. Since 2017, the



Chattanooga Mental Health Awareness Committee has been committed to raising awareness, building



connections, and reducing stigma for southeast Tennesseans dealing with behavioral health issues or substance



use disorders.



In honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month, the committee proudly announces its second annual



benefit, Embracing Hope for Mental Health, featuring an afternoon of Blues, Bluegrass, & BBQ.



The event will be held on May 19, 2019, at the Chattanooga Choo Choo, from 1 – 5 p.m., and showcase some of Chattanooga’s top talent and restaurants, with performances and food available throughout the day.

be supported and linked to appropriate treatment resources.
