The results are in: Josselyn’s 14th Annual Spring Luncheon was a delightful success!

Last Thursday, 210 guests filled the Northmoor Country Club as the Josselyn spring benefit returned after a two-year, COVID-induced hiatus. Josselyn’s very own Cale Wardell, APRN, and Maggie Nash, MSW, MEd, along with State Senator Laura Fine, provided an intimate conversation on trends they are seeing in youth mental health. They also described ways that Josselyn’s expanded programming is helping teens and shared their own powerful personal stories of how they became mental health advocates.

The luncheon was not only a fundraiser for Josselyn programming, it was also a celebration of the Josselyn community who rallied over the last few years to respond to the youth mental health crisis. Thanks to our supporters, Josselyn has grown Camp Neeka, opened a new teen Intensive Outpatient Program, and trained thousands of youth and adults in Mental Health First Aid, all while serving three times the number of kids and teens we saw before the pandemic began.

In total, the luncheon raised more than $87,000 for youth programming at Josselyn. We are incredibly grateful to the Josselyn Auxiliary Board, the Spring Luncheon Planning Committee, and Sue Warshauer for hosting another fabulous spring benefit.
