On Thursday, October 13th, The Mental Health Association of Westchester (MHA) hosted an unforgettable evening of conversation and song with legendary singer-songwriter Judy Collins.
An intimate event at the Emelin Theatre, the evening provided audiences with a glimpse into the Grammy Award-winning singer’s life as she shared her story, touching upon alcoholism, depression, the suicide of her son and her own suicide recovery.
The event also featured a special VIP reception with Collins. Proceeds from the event benefit MHA’s vital mental health services.
The Mental Health Association of Westchester is proud to offer an array of educational opportunities and services for the professional and non-professional communities on topics such as behavioral health, suicide prevention and peer services.
