Why should you sponsor?
Sponsoring our event will be nothing but amazing for you and your business. This conference will bring out not only community members and leaders, but families and business professionals as well. Mental Health is a very serious issue that needs to be addressed in our communities, churches, homes and place of business. Our goal is to spread knowledge surrounding the illness and provide resources to those that are able or do not have support.
As a sponsor, you will get a chance first hand to help those in need. With your sponsorship we be assisting those that are less fortunate with funding for therapy and counseling cost.
Mental Health is a illness not an epidimic. It is up to us as a people to be there for our friends and family and assist in any way that we can.
I am Samantha Jax, author, mother and mental health advocate. In 2015 I became a mental health facilitator for NAMI. Being a daily survivor of mental health myself I felt there was more I could do for my community. Wether it be the community I was raised in or a communit abroad, mental health nests everywhere. I wanted to do more to get people educated on the signs and treatments that can be available to themselves, a family member or friend.
I know all to well, finalizing a marriage after 19 plus years about mis education on my part and not educating my own family first and foremost in order to save it. I wouldnt say that was the only cause but I have acknowledged that it played a big part. So once I accepted that fact I educated myself and my family and vowed to educated others. I recently volunterred at SCDJJ for juvinilles on Thanksgiving to serve the young teens dinner and play games with them. My heart is pure and intentions are great to educate as many as I can.
With that being said
Thank you for allowing me to share with you a piece of why we would love you to come aboard,
