An Evening of Hope and Discovery
Families for Depression Awareness’ 2020 Virtual Celebration
A CELEBRATION UNLIKE ANY WE’VE DONE BEFORE!
The Families for Depression Awareness Board of Directors and 2020 Event Committee thanks everyone that made our seventh annual Evening of Hope and Discovery event a success!
The Evening of Hope and Discovery event, which occurred virtually on October 15, 2020, was a celebration of our work on behalf of families living with depression or bipolar disorder. On that special night, we gathered from the safety of our homes and enjoyed a video presentation, virtual “mingling” in breakout sessions, and moving remarks from our leadership and volunteers. Participants made their own FFDA Mocktails and joined us in a toast at the culmination of the event.
Our online auction also raised thousands of dollars, which will support our programs for teens and families in the year to come.
Our event this year was especially important, as we respond to the growing mental health challenges for young people and anticipate the increased demand for reliable information and strategies for helping those living with depression or bipolar disorder.
