The Atlanta Women’s Foundation (AWF) has announced its 19th annual Numbers Too Big To Ignore luncheon, which will take place on Thursday, November 5, at noon at the Georgia World Congress Center.  This year’s featured speaker is mental health advocate, actress and author Carrie Fisher. The annual fundraiser brings together key leaders and supporters from the greater Atlanta business and nonprofit communities to recognize those who support AWF’s efforts to build a better future for Atlanta’s women and girls.

The focus of this year’s luncheon will be the mental health and wellbeing of women living in poverty. One of the most consistently replicated findings in social science research has been the relationship between health and socioeconomic status and mental illness. Women in poverty experience stress, grief, and depression without the resources or networks in place to support their mental health needs. As the only funder in Georgia dedicated exclusively to women and girls, it is AWF’s role to support women and girl serving organizations at all levels.

Featured speaker Carrie Fisher is an expert on the subject of mental illness as she talks openly and compellingly about her personal battles with manic depression and overcoming substance abuse. She has appeared on the Senate floor, sponsored by Eli Lily and Company, urging state legislators to increase government funding on medication for people living with mental health issues. She has also received dozens of awards for her courage and commitment to fighting mental illness and the stigma that is associated with it. [ ... ]
