Join Us to Celebrate 10 Years of Uplifting Teen Mental Health!

On Friday, December 9th from 7pm-10pm we're marking a major milestone: our 10-year anniversary!

Join us for Our Bright Night, where we will celebrate 10 years of Our Minds Matter, and look ahead to how we can bring light into the lives of thousands more teens with mental health programming.

The evening will include an open bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, and a buffet dinner, and music by the Pete Muldoon Trio. A student showcase will demonstrate the work of some of our amazing clubs in the DMV (and students will be in attendance to discuss their schools' OMM clubs!). A short seated program will begin by 8:15pm. Cocktail attire.

Our Minds Matter began in five high schools in Fairfax County, VA. In the past 10 years, we've grown tremendously, and now support mental health clubs in nearly 130 schools nationwide. And we're still growing: by the end of the 2022-23 school year, we expect to be in 180 schools, reaching thousands of teens with our grassroots, student-led club model.

We are thrilled to celebrate this exciting milestone with our community, and kick off the next decade of our work toward the day when no teen dies by suicide.

A big thank you to our sponsors!
