Hudson Yards partners with Project Healthy Minds to honor World Mental Health Day

Following the success of "The Pippins" exhibition at High Line Nine, Hudson Yards' ongoing partnership with tech nonprofit Project Healthy Minds culminated in a robust day of learning, support and events on October 10th, helping bring awareness to World Mental Health Day. Hudson Yards served as the venue for the full day of programming, which kicked off in the morning with rides by SoulCycle that benefitted Project Healthy Minds. Wellness destination Equinox Hotel New York hosted a soothing sound bath meditation, as well as a VIP Brunch event with Equinox Hotels CEO Chris Norton. CityPickle, Hudson Yards' seasonal court dedicated to the sport of pickleball, facilitated pickleball matches that raised funds for charity. Supermodel and author Yolanda Hadid discussed grief and social media at an intimate fireside chat, while Bonobos Co-Founder and CEO Andy Dunn and Morning Brew Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Alex Lieberman led a fireside chat on the intersection of tech, business and mental health. Capping off the day's events, The Young People's Chorus of New York City gathered at Vessel to screen a film that explored the mental health of teenagers, featuring 15 new songs that chorus members composed during the pandemic. Throughout the day, "The Pippins" exhibit was available to the public, and select retailers donated a percentage of sales to World Mental Health Day. In support of the event, Related Cares additionally matched all employee donations to Project Healthy Minds.
