High Notes Avante is a registered charity using artistic expression to inspire, give hope and connect those touched by mental illness. We produce image-raising concerts & events and offer online and in-person programs using the power of the arts to help those affected move forward on higher notes.
Our ‘image raising’ events feature world class performances and speakers, and showcase the lives and talents of artists and personalities who are living good lives despite having an existing or past mental health challenge. We aim to erase stigma, educate, create community and save lives by encouraging others to reach out and also share their stories.
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. If 1 in 5 people are affected and we all know someone who suffers, we should show the same compassion and respect for those affected by mental illness as for those affected by physical illness. Our events are therapeutic for those affected and an eye opener for the community at large. We invite you to get involved because WE ALL HAVE A (mental health) STORY.
Compassion, Understanding, Respect and Connections through the arts for everyone touched by mental illness.
To inspire, give hope and connect those touched by mental illness through artistic expression.
“Your kindness and empathy vis-à-vis our collective mental health struggles is unsurpassed.”
