Our gratitude for our region’s generosity is overflowing and we are still in such awe of the mental health advocates who came together to raise more than $2.8 million for pediatric mental and behavioral health services at the 4th annual Kids’ Minds Matter Secret Garden Gala on March 4!

At the event, keynote speaker, mental health advocate and best-selling author Kevin Hines shared his personal struggles with mental illness and the story of his miraculous survival following his near-fatal suicide attempt jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. Hines also told his mental health wellness story to high school students in two schools in Lee and Collier counties earlier in the day.
