Navigating the Journey

Join us for the 6th Annual Kids’ Minds Matter Gala: Navigating the Journey as we reflect on how far we’ve come and discover the next steps in our journey as advocates for children’s mental and behavioral health in Southwest Florida.

A Journey of Celebration & Discovery

The sun has risen on the children’s mental health epidemic in our nation, revealing a great need throughout the U.S., and Kids’ Minds Matter has helped to bring that need to light in our region, contributing to solutions that are only possible through philanthropic support. Yet there is still a long way to go before we can fully meet our growing community’s mental and behavioral health care needs.

Now is the time to celebrate how far we’ve come together and discover the exciting direction our journey will take in 2022. Please join us for this extraordinary moment on the path to innovation in pediatric mental and behavioral health advocacy. See what has come to full bloom already and learn what seeds it is time to sow next to ensure a beautiful future for the children of Southwest Florida at the annual signature gala to benefit Kids’ Minds Matter.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served with a full bar available for your enjoyment.

Your Invitation to Innovation

Kids’ Minds Matter has chosen an innovative setting for its 6th Annual Kids’ Minds Matter Gala: Navigating the Journey. The Innovation Hotel in Naples is a setting of uncompromising quality – the perfect place to celebrate our achievements and discover what is next on the quest for mental and behavior health care solutions for Southwest Florida’s next generation.

This unique property is treated by Synexis®  Dry Hydrogen Peroxide, which operates continuously to ward off viruses and other contaminants, reducing airborne pathogens such as influenza by 99.8%.

Kids’ Minds Matter is on a Mission

As an initiative of Lee Health, Kids’ Minds Matter is dedicated to raising awareness and funds that will drive and support opportunities for increased access to pediatric mental and behavioral health care in a five-county region of Florida including Lee, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Charlotte counties.

Our vision is to ensure children receive the right care at the right place and right time, making
the full continuum of services available in our region.
