Mary Kay Bergman Memorial Project

 

The Mary Kay Bergman Memorial Project was founded in November, 1999, in honor of actress and award-winning voice over star Mary Kay Bergman as a mental health outreach program for the entertainment industry.  The veteran performer died by suicide after suffering for years with an untreated anxiety disorder.

Each year, one in five Americans suffer from mental illness, but stigma and fear prevent many from seeking help.  For members of the entertainment industry, concerns about reputation both professionally and publicly can intensify such fears, sometimes leading to devastating consequences.

The Mary Kay Bergman Memorial Project confidentially provides:

Printed information on mental illness

 

Mental health treatment options and referrals

 

A direct link to crisis intervention services by calling (310) 751-5252

 

An internet website where entertainment industry professionals can find mental health resources and other information 24 hours a day

The Mary Kay Bergman Memorial Project is a program of Didi Hirsch Community Mental Health Center.  Founded in 1942, Didi Hirsch was the first outpatient mental health center in Los Angeles.  Through its 14 sites, Didi Hirsch currently provides services to over 29,000 people each year.  To contact Didi Hirsch Community Mental Health Center phone (310) 390-6612.
