This year marks the 24th edition of TELL’s Annual Connoisseurs’ Auction, which is recognized as Tokyo’s premier event for wine connoisseurs. It attracts people from throughout the community who care about mental health and believe in supporting the work that TELL does. Throughout the night, guests can bid on lots of premium wine, extravagant getaways, and exceptional goods and services in both a live auction and a silent auction.

The money raised at TELL Connoisseurs’ Auction provides a significant amount of TELL’s funding. Your support allows us to operate the Lifeline and now Crisis Chat Support, as well as a wide range of educational and outreach programs that assist the well-being of individuals in our community.

Since its establishment in Japan in 1973, TELL has been dedicated to providing world-class, effective support and counseling services to Japan’s international community and helping to address the country’s growing mental health care needs. An accredited and certified non-profit organization, TELL’s vision is to be a leader in services and education by practicing state-of-the-art standards of care in the mental health field. Services include free phone counseling, professional face-to-face evaluations and therapy, and community-wide programs.

Our dream of finally offering a 24-hour crisis support service is closer than ever, with your support we can make this a reality.
