Thank you to all who supported the 10th Annual Faces of Resilience event.
This year's event was a resounding success, raising $494,000 to support the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health and the STAR Program!

We were moved and inspired by our special guests Darrell Hammond and Michelle Esrick, and their powerful film, Cracked Up. Darrell Hammond’s story is a testament to the powerful impact of early childhood trauma, and he and Michelle showed us that it is possible to move forward and find our own personal paths to resilience.

In our community, trauma, mental health and addiction needs are at an all-time high, and they continue to escalate. We are grateful for your partnership as we work to find new cures and effective interventions to treat the full array of mental and behavioral health challenges.
