We are happy to announce the participation of Colt Cabana, aka Scott Colton, pro wrestler (Currently ROH and GFW) and son of long time NAMI CCNS supporters Steve and Marcia Colton.

Colt Cabana has been entertaining crowds around the world as a professional wrestler going on 17 Years. Colt is charismatic & funny while at the same time a gifted mat technician. A combination that ultimately landed him a deal with the WWE.

Colt currently travels the world as a proud alternative & independent performer. His hybrid comedic style along with his crossover appeal has made Colt one of the most in-demand wrestlers on the circuit.

Colt can consistently be seen wrestling in Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan, Mexico and all over the United States.

Please plan on attending “Smash out the Stigma” and join us and Colt Cabana as we make a difference in erasing the stigma of mental illness.

Volunteers are needed to be a part of the movement!!
