The SIH Foundation and the HMC Foundation would like to invite you to attend the 11th Annual Gala event on Friday, March 22, 2024. The festivities begin at 6:00 pm and the evening consists of a collection of gourmet tastes, live music and dancing, and auction with mobile bidding. Please plan to attend this prestigious and entertaining event while helping to support the mission of improving the health and well-being of all the people in the communities we serve. 


This year's proceeds will benefit:


The SIH Foundation and the HMC Foundation are proud to help change access to inpatient psychiatric care for all Southern Illinoisans by expanding the scope of services available at Mulberry Center at Harrisburg Medical Center. In the lower third of the state of Illinois (30 counties) there are currently only 61 beds for inpatient psychiatric care, with 31 of those beds at Mulberry Center and the remaining beds 90 miles away. Without expansion of this facility, many patients must leave the area for psychiatric care, which negatively impacts their ability to recover close to their family, friends, and day-to-day lives. Furthermore, SIH hopes to expand Mulberry Center to continue to offer quality psychiatric care in an environment where comprehensive medical care is available. Through an interactive experience, patients learn to better understand themselves and begin accepting responsibility for their own wellbeing. This process provides opportunities for patients to practice effective alternatives for managing their lives.

Mulberry Center at Harrisburg has emergency admissions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Referrals can be made by calling 618.252.0999 or 618.253-7671.
