Event Sponsorship Opportunities

My name is Valarie Cunningham, and I am the founder and CEO of The Synergy Health Center (SHC), a 501c3 non profit organization, where we transform lives for generations and empower people for a life time through our mental health, behavioral health and substance abuse services, with particular attention to African Americans. As an African American woman,  I am excited to announce our fourth Breaking the Stigma: African American Mental Health Symposium (AAMHS) in partnership with Western Michigan University College of Health and Human Services.

Event Description

This AAMHS is an event that creates a platform to bring awareness to businesses, professionals, educators, advocators, clergy, individuals, family members, and consumers nationwide about the mental health experiences of the black culture.

 

The event will create opportunities for greater discussion on current racial issues, provide culturally relevant and competent mental health training, explore ways to navigate through systemic racism as its traumatic impact on the black culture, and offer systems of care, support and advocacy.

Why Your Partnership is Valuable!

Breaking the Stigma: African American Mental Health Symposium is a massive yet necessary undertaking. I hope that you will find the cause valuable enough to become a partner with me, and assist me in moving the unbalanced needle towards equal access and equity for all. 

 

As a sponsor of the AAMHS, your organization will be associated with one of the nation’s most important events focusing on black mental health awareness and its impact on the African American community. If you too, are taking action steps in a similar direction, we would love to have you come alongside us and inspire others to join the cause of breaking stigmas in the black community so we can create a healthy society together. Please see the sponsorship opportunities listed below. Your support will:

  • Help launch the discussion to improve the mental health recovery to black people and people of color in our community

  • Provide networking opportunities for organizations and thought leaders with similar passions
