Sounding like a broken record at this point, the past 12 months have brought us to tears and then some. Our community is feeling isolated in ways like no other, yet our mental health continues to be stigmatized. So, to combat that fight, Mr. Carmack & Family have teamed up to host You Are Not Alone: A Virtual Mental Health Benefit. All financial proceeds of the event will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to help the fight for life.
Mr. Carmack & Family are striving for a community with no stigmas towards mental health and a safe space for survivors.
On Saturday, February 27, Mr. Carmack will be hosting an online event with musical sets, spoken performances, words from mental health professionals, and more. The Virtual Mental Health Benefit event goes live on Mr. Carmack’s Twitch from 12:00 pm – 12:00 am PST. The You Are Not Alone event is meant to be a safe space where participants can spend time having healthy conversations about mental health, suicide, and honor loved ones lost. Mr. Carmack & Family will collect donations for the AFSP throughout the week of the benefit stream.
You are not alone.
