Denim & Diamonds

An Evening Under the Stars to Bring Mental Health to Light

The 2017 Denim & Diamonds Bash will be held under the stars on AAMC’s south campus (adjacent to the Annapolis Exchange on Jennifer Road in Annapolis). The event will include a cocktail buffet, gourmet food trucks, silent auction, and dancing. Each year, AAMC transfers more than 1,000 patients from the emergency department to inpatient mental health facilities across Maryland and beyond. The most recent community needs health assessment cites improved mental health and substance use services as one of the highest priority healthcare needs for Anne Arundel County. The 2017 Denim & Diamonds Bash is an important opportunity to provide critical funding for vital health services including adult mental health evaluation and navigation, AAMC’s mental health clinic and its mental health partial hospitalization program.
