Bring Change to Mind is a national nonprofit organization co-founded by actress Glenn Close to end the stigma and discrimination of mental illness.  The 6th Annual Revels & Revelations Fundraiser will be held at Sony Hall in New York City on Monday, October 22, 2018.

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.
