NAMI Broward County Places Spotlight on National Mental Health Awareness Month

The public is invited to an afternoon of inspiration, creativity, and advocacy at the 3rd annual "Artful Minds" event on Saturday, June 1.

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, and it’s the perfect time to spotlight the invaluable work of NAMI Broward County. Dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals and families affected by a mental health diagnosis, NAMI Broward operates with a mission centered on education, support, and advocacy.

If you have a mental health condition, you’re not alone. One in 5 American adults experiences some form of mental health diagnosis in any given year. And across the population, 1 in every 20 adults is living with a serious mental health condition.

Through the dedication of trained volunteers, NAMI Broward brings peer-led programs to diverse community settings. These programs and support groups offer essential education, skills training, and unwavering support for individuals living with a mental diagnosis and their loved ones.

As we reflect on the importance of mental health awareness, NAMI Broward invites you to an afternoon of inspiration, creativity, and advocacy at the 3rd annual “Artful Minds” event on Saturday, June 1, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at MAD Arts in Dania Beach.

“Artful Minds” transcends the boundaries of a conventional art exhibition; it’s a dedicated platform for sparking conversations about mental health and wellness while nurturing hope through the transformative power of art. Each piece on display is thoughtfully curated by artists living with mental health conditions or those whose work explores mental health themes. Through their art, attendees gain profound insight into the artists’ journeys toward mental health and recovery. Plus, you will be treated to the sounds of Emmy Nominated Impact Artist, Alexander Star.

Guests will have the opportunity to explore a diverse array of artwork, with all pieces available for sale or bidding. Proceeds from the event directly support NAMI Broward County’s mission of providing essential support services to individuals and families affected by mental health conditions, ensuring accessibility to all.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
