Upcoming TELL Events

The Brown University Club of Japan would like to share a few updates from fellow alumnus Roberto De Vito and the TELL organization.

TELL is a not-for-profit organization that has provided mental health support and counseling services to Japan’s international community for over 40 years, including a free Lifeline crisis hotline.

TELL has created a (short) corporate mental health care survey, and asks for the support of our members in providing their feedback and sharing the survey onward.

World Suicide Prevention Day will be held on September 10, and TELL is organizing awareness-building walks.

TELL’s major fundraiser is its Connoisseurs Auction, comprising a sit-down dinner and a charity auction featuring 25-30 lots of premium wine, luxurious accommodation, and exceptional goods and services from a wide range of donors. The event also features extensive tastings of fine wines from some of Japan’s top wine distributors, as well as free-flow Champagne. TELL is also having events this autumn in Kobe (at the Kobe Club on Friday, October 14) and Kyoto (at Taizo-in on Saturday, October 29) in support of TELL’s increased awareness-building efforts that began with their establishment of a phone room in Kobe in March 2015.

Finally, they’d like to let people know about their distance counseling service, for people who live outside greater Tokyo area.

As you may know, mental health services are not as widely available in Japan as some other countries; we hope some of this information may be of interest or use, and feel free to share it on.
