HIGH NOTES AVANTE PRODUCTIONS INC.
Publicity, and Public Relations
High Notes Avante Productions Inc. uses the power of music and words to put the spotlight on mental health, touch your soul and reduce stigma.
No one frowns at you when you suffer from cancer and no one should when you have a mental illness. Still, due to the stigma, we often hide our heads in the sand like ostriches when someone mentions mental illness. But we can’t hide from the fact that one in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness during their lifetime. Even more will be touched by it. Therefore it is good to know that in 80 per cent of the cases help is available and we can move forward and live normal and even joyful lives.
Really, we are in fine company:
Many composers – including Schumann, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov – dealt with varied degrees of mental health challenges. And what wonderful music they still produced!
Our May 2nd gala concert High Notes for Mental Health at Flato Markham theatre will feature some of their music interspersed with short, uplifting speeches from both major and minor personalities, artists, and mental health professionals. (Please watch CTV’s Lloyd Robertson‘s endorsement) We will spotlight some of the organizations there to help when you need it.
We invite you to get in touch if also you have a story of hope and inspiration. As a non-profit organization we consider the gala a public relations service to both the public and the mental health organizations featured. Please help us move forward and have High Notes for Mental Health televised. How soon depends largely on the support we receive.
