Mental Health America of Colorado Invites You to
Climb Out of the Darkness
Mental illness casts a shadow over the lives of hundreds of thousands of Coloradans, but we are making progress. Join us this fall as we celebrate our success and begin to climb out of the darkness.
Mental Health America of Colorado invites you to take part in our biggest event of the year: the Tribute Gala. The gala will be held on Saturday, Oct. 3, at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Denver. MHAC is Colorado's leading advocate for the prevention, early intervention and effective treatment of mental illness. Our annual Tribute brings together 700 supporters in an evening of celebration and meaningful conversation.
This year's gala will pay tribute to an enterprising team of young mountaineers: the Climb Out of the Darkness Expedition. The team is scaling all 54 of Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks this summer in order to raise awareness – and reduce the stigma – of mental illness.
Tribute is MHAC's premier fundraiser. Proceeds from the event support our organization's life-changing work: promoting the screening, diagnosis and treatment of mental health and substance use disorders; preventing discrimination; and providing nationally recognized leadership in shaping public policy.
