The 8th Annual Mental Heath Awareness Month Book Fundraiser

Welcome the 8th Annual Mental Health Awareness Month Book Fundraiser benefiting the Keith Milano Memorial Fund at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

 

For the 8th year, an amazing group of authors have generously agreed to donate, in Keith name, a portion of their May book sales to help raise awareness for mental health …. for the 8th year people who never knew Keith are coming together to make a difference.

How do you thank a community that has helped you keep your brother’s spirit alive—a community that helped you keep a promise made to him after he passed.

15 years ago when we lost Keith, we decided he would not go quietly, that we would fight for mental health awareness, fight to bring mental illness out of the darkness in his name. At the time we had no idea what that would mean, where our journey would take us or that this community would embrace the cause and join us in the fight.

This event was born organically out of us sharing Keith’s story and our family’s mission and we are humbled at how his story has resonated with so many. We continue to share his story and hope you will join us in making mental health a priority. By sharing your truth, the dialogue can continue to help others feel less alone and more likely to get help.

Our family is so touched by how this community has embraced this cause.

With Deepest Gratitude,

Denise Milano Sprung

Keith Milano Memorial Fund

140 Adams Ave, Suite B-12
Hauppauge, NY 11788

Fund Information:

The Keith Milano Memorial Fund was established to help raise awareness about the devastating and deadly disease that is mental illness. Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness. Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.

If you want to know more about Keith or why Denise does what she does, here is short video/interview that speaks to that!

The Keith Milano Memorial Fund benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). At the end of the event, participating authors pay AFSP directly.

AFSP is the only national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research and education, and to reaching out to people with mood disorders and those affected by suicide. AFSP is a fully accredited 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization incorporated in the state of Delaware with primary offices in New York City. Federal tax ID # is 13-3393329.
