An Evening of Philanthropy & Fun
Please Join Us!

A Celebration of Life is an evening focused on inspiring hope, while also remembering those lives that we have lost to suicide.

September is Suicide Prevention Month. On Thursday, September 20, we join together at the inaugural A Celebration of Life: Boston. The evening is meant to be one that will create special memories and appreciation for life - great food and cocktails, a DJ, and incredible raffle items.

Funds raised from this event will support Minding Your Mind’s mental health education programs.

The History of
A Celebration Of Life

A Celebration of Life began in 2011 to honor the memory of Kyle Craig, a 21-year-old student at Vanderbilt University who took his life in May of 2010. Kyle was a dynamic friend to many; a bright, handsome, and gifted individual across music and athletics, but whose strength of character enabled his growing struggles to be hidden from view.


In the seven years since it began in Nashville, this annual event has expanded to New York, Philadelphia, and now Boston, engaging more than 2,400 young professionals in the service of suicide prevention and mental health awareness.

About Minding Your Mind

Minding Your Mind’s (MYM) primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens and young adults, their parents, teachers and school administrators. Our goal is to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues. Treatment is available, yet only 3 out of 10 individuals needing help actually seek help. Minding Your Mind Programs move away from crisis-based response to prevention through education.
