We have made the decision to protect our constituents and cancel the Annual Spring Benefit. Doing so creates an anticipated financial burden in lost benefit revenue. In addition, the reserve fund that the Institute has relied on to bridge the gap is negatively affected by the stock market performance. This situation is not unique to the Institute and most likely describes the personal financial concerns of all of us. It is with this recognition that I ask all of you to do what you can during this difficult time to participate “in spirit” in this year’s benefit through the purchase of a sponsorship, a ticket, a virtual paddle raise or a donation.

There has never been a more potent illustration of the need for quality mental health education and clinical services. Your support will help our community answer this need today, after COVID-19 and in the future. Thank you.
