JSA (Japan Student Association) Mental Health Awareness Banquet
April 7 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In Japan, the blossoming of Cherry Blossoms represents renewal and happiness. We wanted to incorporate this beautiful symbolism into our event to celebrate each and every one of you. Mental health is a topic that is hard to talk about in many communities. Our goal is to create a safe space for everyone to share their experiences and feel supported.
We are honored to have two special speakers at the event, including the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) and a University of Minnesota Professor from our Japanese Department. NAMI is a renowned organization that provides resources and support. Our event will also feature performances from TaikoArts, UMNTraditionalKaratedo, and Sentimental Sounds!
We are thrilled to host this event and look forward to welcoming you all. Catering will be provided by D’Amico & Sons. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to come together and support one another.
