Open Minds

Open Minds is back in person. Together once again, we come together to celebrate the fantastic work of the team at the Douglas Institute while raising awareness on the impact of mental illness.

The Open Minds evening builds hope by raising funds for the Douglas Foundation. Since 2017, the event has raised nearly $3,300,000 to support cutting edge research and the best possible patient care for mental health.
