The 2022 signature event, Hoosier Idol, features members of the Indiana General Assembly showcasing their hidden talents to compete for the title of 2022 Hoosier Idol.
The evening includes a reception and dinner, followed by the highlight of the evening – entertainment provided by members of our own Indiana General Assembly. Of course, the annual Hoosier Idol event receives generous media coverage as its guest judge panelists are State House celebrities themselves. We expect well OVER 500 attendees, including Indiana policymakers, advocates, psychiatrists, physicians, mental health providers, professionals, and mental health activists.
The goal for Hoosier Idol is to provide a venue for public education on issues critical to the behavioral health system in Indiana, as well as to raise funds for the programs and services of Mental Health America of Indiana. Mental Health America of Indiana has united business and civic leaders, community members and opinion makers, health advocates, legislators and media through this annual charitable event. We could not host this event without the help of our Dinner Chair, Matt Bell, and the support of The Casino Association.
Mental Health America of Indiana has been a partner with the Casino Association of Indiana to promote responsible gambling and treatment for those with gambling addiction. Proceeds from Hoosier Idol help support these many programs and services provided by Mental Health America of Indiana. For well over 50 years, we have worked to improve the lives of persons with mental illnesses and addictive disorders. MHAI is the state’s leading network for mental health and addiction information and advocacy.
