Co-chairs Ellecia and Edmund Knolle and re:MIND will host the seventh annual Help.Hope.Healing. Luncheon on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at the River Oaks Country Club. Since 2012, the luncheon has raised more than $2,150,000 to support re:MIND’s lifesaving mission to provide free and confidential support groups for individuals living with, and family and friends affected by, depression and bipolar disorders. In addition, this year the luncheon will recognize re:MIND’s 15 years of support that has helped the organization serve over 3,000 individuals in the Houston area with over 80 support groups.
This year, recipients of the 2018 Gary Levering Mental Health Impact Award include Marilyn and Bolivar Andrews along with The Hamill Foundation. Marilyn and Bolivar are being honored for their unwavering commitment to re:MIND, inspiring generations of loyal leadership and generous donors. Additionally, The Hamill Foundation, re:MIND’s leading foundation partner, is being honored for serving as an especially strong community advocate for re:MIND’s mission. Through its ongoing support of re:MIND and other local mental health agencies, The Hamill Foundation continues to be an invaluable partner in diminishing stigma and increasing awareness of mental health.
The luncheon will welcome guest speaker Dr. Sanjay Mathew who will share his ground-breaking research on ketamine to treat depression, revealing and examining first-time discoveries about mental illness. [Organizer's description]
