Meet Amanda Tapping and Raise Money for Charity

Stargate and Sanctuary icon Amanda Tapping will be holding a live online interview in support of her chosen mental health charities.

Join us on June 3rd, 2023, for a live online interview with Amanda Tapping covering a subject close to her heart: mental health. Hear stories of how Stargate fandom saves lives and share some of your own.

“As part of the sci-fi community, I’ve seen firsthand how we can all come together and support each other,” says Amanda, “and I would like to extend that same compassion and understanding to issues around mental health.”

Amanda Tapping: Embracing Mental Health as a Fandom starts at 11 am PDT/2 pm EDT/7 pm BST, and will last for one hour.

Tickets are on sale at $20 from The Companion Green Room, with proceeds donated to Amanda’s chosen mental health charities. Paid Companion members can attend for free, but you’re welcome to donate by purchasing a ticket. You can also give directly when we announce Amanda’s charities in the next few days.

Together we can make a difference for a great cause and show the world what our fandom can do.

20 lucky fans are also invited to join us immediately after the live interview on June 3rd for an intimate and exclusive Green Room video call.

Four groups of five Stargate fans will meet with Amanda for 15 minutes to talk about mental health and put their questions to the multi-talented writer, producer, actor, and all-around inspiration.

Tickets for this Green Room Session are $300 for non-members and $250 for paid Companion members, with the proceeds going towards Amanda’s chosen mental health charities. Your ticket for the Amanda Tapping: Embracing Mental Health as a Fandom live event is included in the price.  

This is now SOLD OUT but tickets for the live interview are still available.

Keep checking back for news on how to submit your stories and information on which charities we’ll be supporting.

PLEASE NOTE: This event is not clinical consultation and it’s not a substitute for treatment. It’s a conversation about mental health that we hope will bring out the best in our fandom and demonstrate how powerful we can be as a support network to one another. If you are experiencing a crisis, we’d encourage you to make use of some of the resources provided by the mental health charity Mind and speak to your doctor. If you feel you’re unable to keep yourself safe, you can find a list of crisis helplines on
