Betas & Bowties: All-You-Can-Eat-Pasta Dinner


Since emotional health and suicide had affected many members of Beta Theta Pi fraternity at Central Michigan University, it was unanimously agreed upon that the proceeds of their 2017 event would go to JED.

The event, an all-you-can-eat pasta dinner called Betas & Bowties, was held at the fraternity chapter’s house and they encouraged students from all over campus to attend. Tickets were $4 in advance or $5 at the door.

Whether it was the cause or the reasonable price of admission, the turnout was huge! Betas & Bowties raised over $3,200, bringing people together to share a meal and start conversations about mental health.

The brothers of Beta were very pleased with the positive response and we are so grateful to them for choosing to support JED’s work in this way!

Check out this great video they made!

The World Health Organization defines “mental health” “as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” In using this definition, S2i recognizes that some mental health challenges reflect brain diseases that, like physical diseases, require appropriate stigma-free and patient-centered care and include both mental health and substance use disorders. Other mental health challenges stem from social conditions and marginalization and require different forms of interventions.
