In Concert with Caminar

Saturday, October 19, 2019 | SFJAZZ Center, San Francisco

Please join us for an evening of fabulous live music and delectable food catered by Taste.

Event proceeds benefit Caminar’s life-changing mental health care, which is driven by compassion and science. Through our understanding of root causes and the generosity of our donors, we transform the lives of 20,000 youth and adults in the Bay Area each year with prevention, treatment, and recovery services.

We are delighted to announce our concert headliner,
a protégé of the legendary Quincy Jones, singer Sheléa.

Sheléa: Natural Woman: A Night of Soul from Aretha to Adele
With a voice that stirs the soul and hands that effortlessly glide over the keys, Sheléa represents a return to true artistry that has garnered much attention and adoration from legends throughout the music industry. Her sultry sound is an exciting oasis in an age of auto-tune. Blending traditional pop, jazz, R&B and soul, Sheléa brings a contemporary edge to classics and a classic touch to contemporary pop standards.

Over the last several years, her rising star has continued to accelerate on an unstoppable trajectory. In March 2019, Sheléa starred on PBS, joined by special guests David Foster and Greg Phillinganes, in the concert special QUINCY JONES PRESENTS: SHELÉA, as well as released her much-anticipated third album Pretty World: Through the Eyes of Alan and Marilyn Bergman (Breath of Life Records/Universal). Sheléa will also star in the upcoming music biopic You Brought the Sunshine: The Story of The Clark Sisters, executive produced by Queen Latifah, Missy Elliot, and Mary J. Blige.

You may not yet know her name, but you will. Don’t miss your chance to hear Sheléa perform live!

6th Annual "In Concert With Caminar"

6th Annual "In Concert With Caminar"



Caminar for Mental Health recently held its Sixth Annual “In Concert with Caminar” event at the recently constructed SFJAZZ Center in the heart of San Francisco on the evening of Saturday, October 15. This yearly affair helps raise community awareness around mental health issues, highlighting Caminar’s client success stories and funding critical mental health programs.

GRAMMY Award winning and nominated jazz saxophonists kept the crowd dancing throughout the night. Mindi Abair performed with The Boneshakers and Sweet Pea Atkinson, and the very talented David Sanborn was the main feature of the night.  

The highlight of the evening was the outpouring of personal stories and experiences of mental health issues among Caminar clients, performers, and guests, and how Caminar’s services are crucial for recovery.

Caminar auctioned off unique experiences such as a Monterey Colony Dunes Vacation, NASCAR Racing Series VIP tickets, a Bay Area Sports Fan Package, tickets to attend the American Music Awards, a framed photo of Michael Phelps and dinner with world renowned portrait photographer Michael Collopy, A Day at the 2017 Masters and Vacation Package at the legendary Mauna Kea Beach Resort in Hawai’i.

Caminar CEO Chip Huggins announced that this event grossed nearly $430,000. Proceeds will support all mental health programs including the Crisis Housing Fund to help prevent clients at risk of homelessness. He also announced that Caminar will merge with Family and Children Services of Silicon Valley in early 2017, which will expand Caminar’s support system to children, teens, families and the LGBTQ community.

Serving the greater San Francisco Bay Area since 1964, Caminar’s mission is to improve quality of life for people with disabilities by providing opportunities to live in a community with dignity and independence. For more details call 650-372-4080.

2nd Annual Mental Health Symposium
4:30 PM16:30

2nd Annual Mental Health Symposium


Mental Illness – a topic long misunderstood by the public and shrouded in stereotype and stigma – is entering a new era of understanding. Caminar believes our society is on the threshold of embracing a healthier and more positive view of mental illness, and we are committed to catalyzing this movement. With our extensive experience in the field and broad network of collaborative partners, Caminar is ideally positioned to lead the local discussion on mental illness, healing, and wellness.

Please join us for this valuable educational opportunity.



This symposium’s panelists are recognized leaders on the cutting edge of behavioral health care delivery, and advocates for exploring new approaches to treatment. As we raise awareness and break down stigma, we hope people needing treatment will be more likely to seek help and barriers to treatment will subside, freeing the flow of services to those in need. 

Moderator and Speaker: Steven Adelsheim, M.D. 
Topic: Suicide prevention, early psychosis program development, expanded school mental health work, Headspace Program

Dr. Adelsheim is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, the Director of Community Partnerships for the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and the Director of the Stanford Center for Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing. Dr. Adelsheim is a national leader in developing and implementing early detection and intervention programs for young people in school-based and primary care settings, including programs for depression, anxiety, and prodromal symptoms as well as first episodes of psychosis.  Dr. Adelsheim also develops statewide mental health policy and systems focused on bettering and expanding school mental health and suicide prevention, such as spearheading the implementation of the Headspace Program in the United States after successful program outcomes in Australia.  Additionally, Dr. Adelsheim is involved in integrating behavioral and primary care health and the use of media to decrease mental health stigma.

She deconstructs diagnostic groups using brain imaging, physiological, behavioral and genetic data. Her goal is to characterize dysfunction at the individual person level and to identify biomarkers that will guide prognostic and treatment decisions in real world clinical settings. Her research has contributed over 240 publications to the field and attracted multiple awards.
