Events at Vinfen

Events at Vinfen embody our values and mission of transforming lives together. Each event has a unique purpose or initiative where our staff, the people we serve and their families, community partners, and supporters are celebrated, essential funds are raised, and platforms are established to increase awareness and resources to better serve our community.

Vinfen hosts a suite of events on an annual basis. Vinfen’s Celebration of Family Partnerships honors the incredible people we serve and their family members within the Vinfen community. Our Moving Images Film Festival uses the power of film to host a free, community-building event that raises awareness, fosters important dialogue, and fights against the prejudices and discrimination often faced by the people we serve as well as the mental health and disability communities. Vinfen’s Run-4-Life serves as an annual fundraiser where donations support the health and well-being of the people we serve. And Vinfen’s Innovative Technology in Behavioral Health Conference creates an educational platform where technological advancements and the integration of digital technology with mental health are celebrated.

Suicide Prevention & Awareness in Autistic Adults and Adolescents

April 19, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Special Guest: Troylene “Sugie” Ali

Join Us Virtually
April 19, 2023
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The risk factors for suicide in people with autism can be very different to those in the general population, and thus require tailored prevention strategies. Join us as we shine a light on this important topic and consider how best to address suicide prevention and awareness for the autism community.

We will be joined by Troylene “Sugie” Ali whose son, Tylee, died by suicide last year. She hopes to honor her son’s memory by sharing his story and helping other families learn about how to prevent suicide in adults and adolescents with autism.
