A Summit for Mental Health Equity

Next Tuesday, MADO Healthcare leadership join more than a thousand mental health and substance use disorder professionals, business and civic leaders, advocates and persons with lived experience at The Kennedy Forum’s 4th Annual National Meeting convening in Chicago.  This year’s meeting, Bending Towards Justice: A Summit for Mental Health Equity, features speakers David Axelrod – CNN senior political commentator, Michael Phelps – 28 time Olympic Medalist, New York’s First Lady Chirlane McCray, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, former Congressman Patrick Kennedy and MADO Healthcare President and CEO, Peter J. O’Brien, Sr. As in past years, the day’s events are likely to stimulate meaningful discussion, challenge attendees to think in new ways to address mental health and addiction and inspire those participating with a renewed commitment to combat stigma and provide better access to care.  As an organization dedicated to helping persons who live with mental illness support individual pursuits of wellness, we stand vigilant in public efforts to insure access to mental healthcare and substance use disorder treatment.  To learn more about this event and the work of the Kennedy Forum, visit thekennedyforumillinois.org.
