The 20th annual Benefits of Laughter was held on Thursday, October 19, 2017, at The St. Regis Atlanta. More than 600 philanthropic and corporate leaders gathered to show their support for Skyland Trail and mental health. Led by event chairs Jane and Clay Jackson, the event raised more than $800,000 to support financial aid and unique psychiatric treatment programs and therapies. A Skyland Trail graduate shared her personal story of living with a mental illness and how treatment at Skyland Trail helped her heal and recover. Finally, proving that laughter often is the best medicine, guests enjoyed a comedic performance by Nate Bargatze.
