American Psychiatric Foundation Hosts a Benefit for New Orleans Mental Health Organizations as a Part of the Institute for Psychiatric Services Conference
Date:10/11/2007

ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Psychiatric Foundation (APF) will host two events, Conversations and "A Night for New Orleans", on Saturday, October 13, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the New Orleans Marriott as a part of the Institute for Psychiatric Services (IPS) Conference that will take place from October 11-14.

The American Psychiatric Foundation has historically hosted Conversations at the APA annual meetings. However, due to the large success of the interactive series that offers psychiatrists an opportunity to hear unique perspectives on mental illness, APF has elected to host its first Conversations at IPS event in New Orleans. The night's events will feature music from Dr. Michael White and the Original Liberty Jazz Band; Amanda Shaw & the Cute Guys; and Charmaine Neville. The featured musicians will not only entertain but enlighten attendees through their personal accounts of survival and recovery after Hurricane Katrina.

In conjunction with Conversations, the foundation will hold a benefit reception called "A Night for New Orleans". This event will bring together and honor mental health organizations that have been central to the mental health recovery of the New Orleans community post Hurricane Katrina. In addition, a silent auction will be held to raise funds for the participating mental health organizations. A poster session for the APF Helping Hands Grant Program for medical students will also be included in the evening's events. Of the posters that will be presented, there will be a group of students from New Orleans.

APF would like to invite New Orleans residence to come out and enjoy the evening's entertainment for a worthy cause. APF's goal for this event is to raise awareness and funds for organizations who are working towards effectively treating mental illness in New Orleans.
