Nearly 60 million Americans experience a mental illness every year. Regardless of race, age, religion or economic status, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in four adults and in one in ten children across the United States.
Join Project 375 and the National Alliance on Mental Illness Cook County North Suburban in partnership for one gala supporting an All-Star Team of mental health advocates on Saturday May 16, 2015 at iconic Soldier Field, “Huddle up for Mental Health”.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI Cook County North Suburban provides education and support for family/friends of individuals with serious mental illness.
Project 375 (formerly known as The Brandon Marshall Foundation) has created Project Prevent. Resources will go towards early intervention services for students 11-18 to promote mental health and ending stigma through staff training, parent education and outreach.
“Although we have different roles in the mental health community, we have a singular purpose, which is to promote mental health and ensure that all have the opportunity to lead healthy and effective lives.”
Supporting mental health is a team effort. Please join our team by being a sponsor, donating an item for our live/silent auction and or by attending to make this a winning evening of awareness!
Thank you for your generous support,
Brandon & Michi Marshall-Project 375
