WHAT: Bring Change to Mind, a nonprofit organization co-founded by Glenn Close to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness, will host its sixth annual Revels & Revelations fundraiser on Monday, October 22 at Sony Hall in New York City. Comedian, actor, writer and television producer Joel McHale has just been announced to perform at the event.

 

Hosted by Wayne Brady and featuring musical direction by Paul Shaffer, Revels & Revelations will include a variety of performances to complement a lineup of inspiring guest speakers. Bring Change to Mind will raise funds for this worthy cause throughout the evening, which will also include a special presentation of the second Robin Williams Legacy of Laughter Award to Whoopi Goldberg, cocktails and an elegant dinner.

 

WHO: Bring Change to Mind (BC2M) is a national organization working to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness through widely distributed public education materials and programs based on the latest scientific insights that have been measured for effectiveness.

 

In 2009, award-winning actress Glenn Close assembled the nation’s most influential mental health organizations to identify and discuss gaps in advocacy. Together, they determined that there was a critical need to combat stigma through messaging and to normalize the conversation around mental illness. In 2010, Glenn and her family made the decision to offer her celebrity and network of media contacts to mental health advocacy. Glenn’s sister, Jessie, lives with bipolar disorder and her nephew, Calen, lives with schizoaffective disorder.
