Take the STIGMA handwashing challenge!

Alex Boye Concert

Didi Hirsch is proud to present a concert featuring two dedicated advocates: our 2019 Mental Health Ambassador Alex Boyé and 13-year-old singer/songwriter/actress Alex Freeman.

The free, half-hour concert is part of Didi Hirsch’s #ErasingTheStigma Campaign, which extends through May, Mental Health Awareness Month, to raise awareness and funds for our mental health, substance use and suicide prevention services.

Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services launched the Erasing the Stigma Campaign on April 23 to raise funds and awareness for its mental health, substance use and suicide prevention services.

Extending through the end of May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month, the campaign includes several online activities including our online Erasing the Stigma Awards Show, our social media STIGMA handwashing challenge, videos from Frontline staff, and some upcoming live events on Facebook and Instagram.

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Didi Hirsch has continued to make services accessible via telemedicine and teletherapy. We also have on-site services at our three community-based clinics and all of our residential treatment centers. In addition, we have kept our Suicide Prevention Center open and continue to operate our 24/7 Suicide Crisis Line and Disaster Distress Helpline.

Thanks to the generosity of many of our supporters, we have raised about 75% of our $650,000 goal. Please make a gift to our campaign today and join us in #ErasingTheStigma and #StoppingTheSpread!

Please join our Campaign to help us meet our goal by May 31.
