Music for Mental Health: An Evening of Song and Discussion featuring Alfred Banks, Mia Borders, Mike Doussan & Co., Kei Slaughter, & Kathryn Rose Wood.

In honor of National Suicide Prevention Month, we present an intimate concert centered on the role of music as an outlet, coping tool and connector in navigating mental health issues. For some of us, that means losing a family member to suicide, living with depression, and our own suicidal ideation; for others, it means struggling with PTSD and anxiety, or battling addiction. In a stripped-down setting, we join each other on-stage sharing songs and story about these experiences in efforts to bring transparency to the discussion of mental illness.

The Brett Thomas Doussan Foundation, proud sponsor of the event, will be on hand sharing about their «Music For the Mind» campaign, a local initiative to highlight musical luminaries of New Orleans and beyond in their personal mental health journeys.

Tickets are $15.75 at the door or online here.

All proceeds (save for those that the Mint collects) will be donated to NAMI New Orleans, the local affiliate for the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). NAMI New Orleans offers hope, help, and healing to people with mental illness – and to those who share their lives – through family support, education and advocacy, and quality psychosocial services. NAMI New Orleans' work helps individuals live with dignity and independence within the community, enriching all of our lives.
