Join the SIMS team and help SIMS spread the word about our services. SIMS volunteers primarily serve as ambassadors at music events in the community. It’s fun and rewarding work if you love live music and appreciate the hardworking folks that make it happen.
SIMS partners with more than 60 licensed mental health providers in private practice in the Austin area. They serve SIMS clients at a significantly reduced rate in order to support Austin’s creative community, resulting in $800,000 of in-kind services donated annually.
The SIMS Circle is a group of generous music lovers who are invited to exclusive receptions throughout the year to network with other members and hear some of Austin’s most beloved musicians in an intimate setting. Members can enjoy VIP status as they did for the 2013 Austin Music Awards.
“Thank you for being there. If you weren’t around, I may not be here. The help I have received from SIMS has saved my life.” –Anonymous SIMS Client

Latinos are at a high risk for depression, anxiety and substance abuse, yet are significantly less likely to seek professional help. SIMS created a video to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness and addiction, and to encourage people, particularly Latino music professionals, to ask for help.
