Shanti Das, Founder of Silence the Shame, Inc. shares, “Silence the Shame is proud to present, A Brilliant Mind Gala, a virtual experience of music, entertainment, and mental health and wellness education. This year we are hyper-focused on supporting individuals in the music industry to reduce rates of suicide, substance abuse and promote a wellness culture with the launch of our new training program, The Soundtrack for Mental Health. These fundraising events kick off our month-long campaign to raise $1 million to expand programming nationally to improve mental health outcomes for executives, creatives and artists in the music industry. We are also excited to partner with Naked Cashmere, who will donate $5 for every limited-edition mask set sold in honor of National Silence the Shame Day.” Click to register for your FREE ticket to “A Brilliant Mind.”

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about one in every five individuals in the U.S. experience a mental illness each year. In June 2020, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported that 40% of the adults surveyed showed increased mental health conditions. The report identified that young adults, racial minorities, and other vulnerable population groups experienced disproportionately worse mental health outcomes, increased substance use, and elevated suicidal ideation. In February 2021, the CDC reported that the percentage of adults with recent symptoms of anxiety or depression increased from 36.4% to 41.5%, and the rate of those reporting unmet mental health care needs increased from 9.2% to 11.7%.
