Mental Health Awareness Family-Friendly Event 
Inspired by the story of Disney’s Inside Out and
SAMHSA’s Eight Dimensions of Wellness

Help us raise awareness and educate families about mental illness, strategies for attaining mental health & wellness and to reduce the stigma, negative attitudes and misconceptions of mental illness in Jackson and Hillsdale County with this family friendly event!

Studies show 1 in 5 individuals experience a mental illness.

LifeWays Community Mental Health, Jackson County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition and Baker College of Jackson will host Islands of Wellness, a mental health family activity day designed to raise awareness of mental health for children and families and provide them with community resources. As well, activities and challenges will be offered throughout the day that families can participate in that teach about taking care of mental health and beating stress in a fun and interactive way! The theme of this year’s event is Inside Out! Families will have the opportunity to complete challenges based on SAMSHA’s 8 Dimensions of Wellness which boost mental health. As well, there will be Resource Reef and Serenity Point which will allow individuals to participate in pet therapy, art therapy, music therapy and other activities to beat stress and take care of their mental health.

Our fundraising goal for this event is $10,000 which will be used to support not only this event, but future opportunities for an annual event and to increase education on mental health. Additionally, part of the proceeds of this event will go to local coalitions in the community. In order to meet this goal, we are asking for sponsorships and support from local businesses and organizations.

Your contribution to the event will be recognized in several ways. As a sponsor, your name will be placed on all materials and banners that publicize the event, as well as announced verbally at the event itself. You will also be given the opportunity to have a resource table at the event. Sponsorship levels are described below. If you are unable to provide a sponsorship level, any contributions would still be greatly appreciated.

We would love to have your support in raising awareness for mental health in our community. We hope that we can count on you to help support this great cause!
