Access Institute is pleased to honor award winning singer and actress, Sheryl Lee Ralph and esteemed Senator Vincent Hughes, two individuals who have made advocacy for the health and mental well-being of vulnerable communities core to their work, both individually and as a couple. Married for nearly 20 years, the couple connected early through their shared commitment to championing positive change, particularly for the Black community, for low-income people, people with HIV/AIDS and other marginalized groups.

At Access Institute we have shared the same passion (also for the past 20 years) to advocate for and serve those who our society and our healthcare system has left out in the cold. On March 16th, we will joined forces with Sheryl Lee Ralph and Vincent Hughes to foster the healing and renewal of our community. It was a night to remember!

 Access Institute ensures that Bay Area residents of all ages have access to comprehensive mental health care. We provide life-saving treatments to people who have nowhere else to turn, helping them onto a healing path. In the past two-years, our work has become ever more vital as we've provided essential support for those most impacted by the isolation, disruption and distress brought on by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

On Thursday March 16th, over 300 community members, civic leaders, artists, mental health professionals, and honored guests came together on the beautiful San Francisco waterfront for a transformative evening featuring art, live and silent auctions, fine wine and gourmet food - all with the goal of raising major funding to support the psychological health and well-being of our community.

In response to the ongoing challenge of recovering all the impacts of COVID-19, we chose the 2023 event theme: "Healing and Renewal".

After the trauma of the last few years we all need time, space and support to heal. We need to heal as individuals and as a community. Healing is a process we best accomplish together. We also know that recovery is not about returning to past "normal" but, rather, it offers new opportunities for learning and growth. Individually and collectively, it's a chance for renewal. Thank you to everyone who joined us as we celebrated our strength, healed together and renewed our mental health.

For more than 20 years, Spectrum has featured an outstanding art auction featuring works donated by dozens of emerging and established artists all of whom contribute because they care about supporting the mental wellness of their community. We are so grateful to all of our 2023 participating artists!

We are filled with gratitude for the support we have received regarding the vital work we are doing.
