Each year, Inova Honors, our signature fundraising event, recognizes and celebrates excellence at Inova.

This year, we are pleased to recognize team members and programs that touch the lives of tens of thousands of patients and families in our community—Inova Behavioral Health Services.

The continuing pandemic has created a mental health epidemic, with alarming rates of depression, anxiety and suicide. It has also created unprecedented levels of awareness and de-stigmatization, helping individuals facing mental health crises realize they are not alone.

Our goal is to raise $3 million through event sponsorships, ticket sales and auction proceeds that will strengthen Behavioral Health programs, shine a light on this critical issue and expand access for our community. Through your partnership and support, we can ensure that each patient receives the expert care they need and deserve.
