Here’s How You Can Help SIMS Raise Mental Health Awareness in Austin

Listen to this post with Alexa!

Did you know May is Mental Health Awareness Month? There’s still time to take action and help raise awareness, thanks to The SIMS Foundation.

The need for mental health and recovery support in the music community has never been greater as ongoing support is needed to continue to meet the increased demand for help. By ensuring musicians, music industry professionals and their dependent families have affordable access to these services, SIMS aims to enhance mental wellness of the community, and make sure the music industry as a whole is taken care of. SIMS Foundation is the only organization of its kind in the country providing behavioral healthcare specifically to these individuals.

Like many nonprofits, the past year has been difficult, and mental health is often not considered a basic need to be granted support. Events and partnerships not only raise awareness, but also much needed funds for the nonprofit that saw the cancellation of nearly all fundraising events in 2020.

Looking for an easy way to help! Deep Eddy Vodka is hosting an event to benefit SIMS at the Tasting Room on Saturday, May 22!

Here’s everything you need to know about the Deep Eddy Acoustic Event:
