Mental Health America of Northwest Indiana hosts two main events each year to assist in raising awareness and funding that support the programming we provide to some of NWI most vulnerable communities. We hope that you will join us in being an advocate for mental health at one or both!

Please join us for our Annual Legacy Breakfast at Avalon Manor on Wednesday, May 10, 2023, for a moving personal testimony on childhood trauma, followed by a keynote address on the importance of early intervention and prevention in overcoming adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

Joining us is the esteemed Melissa T. Merrick, PhD, President and CEO of Prevent Child Abuse America, the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Dr. Merrick is recognized as one of the country’s foremost experts on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs): in partnership with the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Child Abuse and Neglect.

Positive Impact

“I’ve been seeing a mom for more than a year who has struggled with depression due to an abusive relationship. Together, we created a safety plan to help her deal with her feelings, and she continues to work through difficult times. She keeps this safety plan on her fridge so when she recognizes that she is having difficulty coping, she can read through it and try one of the activities that help her or call a friend for support. When we met, she had nowhere to turn for help. During our visits, we were able to talk about healthy relationships and about resources and safe places she could go to get out of her situation. After a few months, she decided to follow through with the plan we created, utilizing resources I was able to provide. Today, mom is thriving in a new environment and focusing on her personal growth and the development of her child.”
