How are you feeling? This simple question is one that we learned to use when connecting with friends and loved ones over the last year. Our separation from our social circles left many people experiencing new emotions and we realized the importance of checking in on one another. At the Mental Health Foundation – be nice. we empower individuals with the tools to understand mental health, how you think and act, and how you are feeling. Each of these things comprise our overall mental health. The work of Mental Health Foundation leads to psychologically safe schools and work environments and provides the tools to recognize signs of suicide and mental health crisis.

Shining Through…Feeling Good is an art show and auction that highlights the creative talents of local artists who are living with severe and persistent mental illness. Each piece of artwork sold at Shining Through is divided between the artist (51%) and the Foundation (49%). Additionally, items donated by local retailers are auctioned with 100% of the proceeds supporting the Foundation’s be nice. and other mental health education programs.

This year's theme artists are Susan Meekhof and Dana Charney

Stomp Out Stigma 5K Walk for Mental Health

Save the Date: May 21st

Thanks you to everyone who made our 2021 Stomp Out Stigma Events a success!

Proceeds from the walk benefit our be nice. programs and awareness throughout the community. Through the be nice. action plan (notice, invite, challenge, empower) we are able to educate students about mental illnesses and encourage them to exchange stereotypes for understanding, compassion, and acceptance.

Thank you to our SOS 2021 Sponsors!
