Miss New Hampshire USA, and Advocate for Sexual Assault Victims Spoke at The Center’s Annual Benefit

Britney Lane, Miss New Hampshire USA 2023, was the featured presenter at The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester’s annual benefit event on Monday, October 23. Britney shared how a past personal experience transformed her passion for supporting survivor-led policy changes for victims of sexual violence. Britney has used her platform on pageant stages across the country to spread her message about sexual assault prevention and education.

Britney Lane is a child and adolescent social worker at The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester. Through her healing journey, Britney learned that she couldn’t change what happened to her. However, she used her voice and passion to help change the system so other women would not have to endure what she did. Britney helped pass the Sexual Assault Bill of Rights in Rhode Island as well as the United Nations Resolution Bill. Both bills provide survivors of sexual violence with services, rights, and access to justice.

The 24th Annual Benefit for Mental Health raised nearly $110,000. Proceeds will help to support many of the underfunded programs offered by The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester such as; InSHAPE, Medication Assisted Recovery, Homeless Outreach, Support groups, Residential services, and more.
