We achieve our mission by educating the public about ways to preserve and strengthen mental health; by sponsoring support groups; by serving as a clearinghouse for information about mental health promotion, prevention and treatment resources in our community; and by fostering innovation in policy, research, practice and services.

Save the date — Join us to learn about what MHA-MC is doing to support health care in our community and state and our goals for 2020. Nominations for mental health categories will be solicited and winners will be announced, recognizing those agencies, individuals, etc. for their contributions. Our keynote speaker is Jill Lees, Bloomington Police Department’s Chief of Police. We will introduce our volunteer board members, serve you a great dinner with a cash bar and provide music for dancing. There will be table sponsorships available, an Eventbrite to register coming soon and a raffle.

David Sedaris

07:30 pm to 10:30 pm
IU Auditorium
https://www.iuauditorium.com/events/detail/david-sedaris-2020

Join best-selling author and NPR contributor David Sedaris for an evening featuring all-new stories, an audience Q&A, and a book signing. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Mr. Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris returns to the road following the release of his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious collection, Calypso. Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny—it’s a book that can make you laugh ’til you snort, the way only family can.

Napoleon Dynamite

07:30 pm to 10:30 pm
IU Auditorium
https://www.iuauditorium.com/events/detail/napoleon-dynamite

The beloved indie classic Napoleon Dynamite was made almost 15 years ago. Since then much has changed; but the characters, as enduring as they are endearing, stay in our hearts. Appealing to the inner-teenager in each of us, the story, and more importantly the dialogue, makes Napoleon Dynamite one of the most quoted movies of our time.

Napoleon Dynamite makes us laugh—and laugh hard—over and over again.

This unique evening includes a full screening of Napoleon Dynamite followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with fan-favorite cast members Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro), and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico).

Event is BYOT (Bring Your Own Tots).
