Community Events

Skyland Trail community events promote mental health education and celebrate the stories, strengths and talents of individuals living with mental illness.

Dorothy C. Fuqua Lecture

The annual community education series honors the late Dorothy Chapman Fuqua, former board member and benefactor of Skyland Trail. Past speakers include The Honorable Patrick Kennedy, Sanjay Gupta, Dr. Richard Kogan, Former U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates, and many individuals and families with lived experience with mental health disorders.

Arts in the Garden

Held annually at Skyland Trail, Arts in the Garden celebrates art, music, nature, and community as powerful tools in mental health recovery and community resilience. Each spring during National Mental Health Awareness Month, we open our gardens and showcase the talents of individuals living with a mental health diagnosis.
