MASKerade for Mental Illness

Please join TMI Mental Health Awareness & Education for its biggest event of the year: the “MASKerade of Mental Illness - Conquering the Stigma" benefit on Saturday October 27, 2018. The event will have food, cocktails, music, and a live auction hosted by Charleston’s own Tom Crawford from Low Country Live.

TMI is committed to introducing its local communities to mental health programs in an effort to demystify and conquer the stigma associated with mental illness. It is working with churches, community organizations, and corporate entities to certify Mental Health First Aiders throughout the Lowcountry.

According to Tri-county Health Landscape (2016), the ratio of mental health providers to population is 1 : 320 in Charleston County, 1 : 798 in Dorchester County, and 1 : 1,261 in Berkeley County. This fundraiser provides resources for various mental health awareness initiatives to help close that gap in knowledge and access. Funds raised will allow TMI to train community members in Mental Health First Aid - at a reduced cost or for free.
