MISSD Holds 2ND Annual Fundraising Event

September marks Suicide Awareness Month and The Medication-Induced Suicide Education Foundation in Memory of Stewart Dolin (MISSD) will hold its 2nd Annual Fundraising Event.

The event is on Thursday, September 4, 2014, from 6:30 pm- 9:30 pm, at Park West, 322 West Armitage Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. The evening will be educational, but fun-filled with appetizers, cocktails and raffles. Tickets are $50 (35 years and under) or $125 (36 years and over). To purchase tickets please go to

Two years ago, MISSD was founded in Stewart Dolin’s memory to raise awareness and educate the public about the dangers of medication-induced suicide and akathisia.  MISSD is not an anti-drug organization, rather we look to raise awareness about potential side effects and better monitoring of patients who have recently started or stopped a medication, specifically a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) medication.

MISSD has made many strides towards reaching these objectives by reaching out to the public by attending and participating in related conferences and walks, developing a brochure and more. We are in the midst of putting together an educational presentation to present at schools, hospitals, and other related venues.
