May 1: Gypsy Temple Concert at the Seattle Waterfront Park @ Seattle Waterfront Park
May 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

IN HONOR OF MAY MENTAL HEALTH MONTH, SEATTLE’S GREAT WHEEL WILL GLOW GREEN ON MAY 1 – 4

To mark the community’s commitment to advocating for the mental health of Washington State citizens and sponsored by We Work for Health Washington, the Wheel’s 500,000 LED lights will dazzle the skyline of the Emerald City in green for four days starting with a celebration at Seattle’s Waterfront Park at 7:00pm on May 1, 2019. The lighting will be followed by a brief speaker program and performance by alt-rock band, Gypsy Temple, who are partnering with NAMI Washington to raise awareness and help remove the stigma that youth living with mental illness face.

“NAMI Washington is proud to light the Seattle Great Wheel green to kick-off May Mental Health Month for the third consecutive year,” said Lauren Simonds, Executive Director of NAMI Washington.  “We see it as a celebration of mental health and the eradication of stigma.”

Simonds said the organization is working to expand early intervention and youth mental health awareness efforts through its middle and high school “Ending the Silence” (EtS) program.  “In King County alone, EtS is reaching more than 3,000 students annually – and we look forward to expanding this initiative with our 19 affiliates in communities large and small throughout Washington State.  We are grateful to partner with Gypsy Temple on these efforts.”

Gypsy Temple will perform a new song, “Hold Your Crown,” written by 20-year-old front man, Cameron Lavi Jones and dedicated to a friend experiencing depression. “Each of us in Gypsy Temple has a direct connection to mental illness – either personally or with the people we care about. The “Hold your Crown” project is about making sure that we are all supporting each other and promoting healthy and empowering ways to overcome mental health struggles.  Is about youth speaking to youth and letting them know they are not alone.”

All art that will be showcased has been submitted by alumni and community members of Eating Recovery Center and Insight Behavioral Health Centers.

Please consider contributing any art that you may have created or connected to while in treatment, during tough moments of recovery, or any other moments in the roller coaster that is healing.
