Josselyn kicked off Mental Health Awareness Month with a record-breaking event on May 1. Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s Spring Luncheon and the 250 guests who joined us, together we broke last year’s attendance record! You and many others helped us raise awareness and more than $100,000 so far (donations are still rolling in!) for mental health programs serving young children and teens from nearby communities.

The event featured an inspiring conversation on youth mental health led by NBC 5 Reporter and Fill-In Anchor Lauren Petty and a panel of experts including Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist Karamjit Singh, M.D., Psychologist Rachel Greenley, Ph.D., and Therapist Nicole Denman. Guests also enjoyed a boutique shopping experience curated by some of the North Shore’s best shops and vendors.

We are deeply grateful to all of our supporters, panelists, vendors, and staff who helped to make this year’s Spring Luncheon a success. Together we are changing the lives of youth facing mental health challenges.

During the month of May, we invite you to help us keep the momentum going in a few simple ways:  

  • If you’d like to make a gift or invite family and friends to support Josselyn, there is still time! Please visit and share our Spring Luncheon donation page and join our efforts to make Mental health for all possible for young people in our communities.
