Our annual fall event, Cocktails for a Cause, was a resounding success, raising more than $348,000 to support Josselyn’s vision of Mental health for all.

The October 12th event took place at Sunset Ridge Country Club, where more than 200 attendees enjoyed signature cocktails, small bites, and conversation with friends and Josselyn supporters.

“I am deeply grateful for the generous community. Extending our vision of Mental health for all through the support of our signature event has been nothing short of remarkable,” said Susan Resko, Josselyn CEO and President.

The event included an inspiring program featuring WGN-TV anchor and medical reporter Dina Bair, who shared a powerful message of the impact of mental health care as well as current mental health trends.

Guests also had the opportunity to experience Expressive Therapy and Supported Employment stations led by Case Manager McCarrick Fitzgerald and Clinical Supervisor Nicole Anderson, BC-DMT, LCPC.

The need for high-quality, coordinated mental health care has never been greater. The funds raised from Cocktails for a Cause will help support programming at Josselyn as we continue to expand services to meet the needs of our clients, our staff, and our community.

If you would like to support Josselyn’s vision of Mental health for all, please consider making a donation here.
