Light Up the Night is the annual gala raising awareness and support for the mission of Hennepin County Medical Center. This year’s event benefits Psychiatry Services.

Hennepin Health Foundation is dedicated to building the capacity of the hospital and clinics of HCMC to care for anyone, at any time, with any condition. Nowhere is this expressed more than in our care for those with mental illness. Emotional crisis or a psychiatric emergency can happen to anyone, at any time. In fact, one in four adults will have some kind of mental illness in their lifetime, and HCMC will be there to help 24/7/365.
