"Reach for Recovery" Event to Feature Former U.S. Congressman Patrick Kennedy

Former U.S. Congressman and mental health advocate Patrick Kennedy will be the keynote speaker at a “Reach for Recovery” event on May 1st to benefit the Greater Dayton Mental Health Foundation. Kennedy has battled bipolar disease and has been outspoken about taking the stigma out of mental illness, arguing individuals go without treatment as a result and it should be treated the same way as a physical illness. He is co-founder of One Mind for Research, an independent non-profit that strives to orchestrate a national scientific campaign to understand brain disorders.  Nearly 100 million Americans suffer from neurological disorders from autism to Alzheimer’s disease.

Kennedy will speak at a luncheon starting at 11:45 a.m. at Sinclair Community College on May 1, 2013.  Individual tickets are $60, sponsorship level tables are available at $1,000, $800 and $600.  Checks can be made payable to: Greater Dayton Mental Health Foundation, c/o Lynn Voisard, 409 E. Monument St., Suite 102, Dayton, 45402.  For more information, call 443-0416, ext. 108.

The event is sponsored by the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board of Montgomery County which ensures residents have access to a timely and accessible system that is progressive, coordinated, efficient, effective and financially stable.

The Greater Dayton Mental Health Foundation, a component fund of The Dayton Foundation, is a non-profit organization dedicated to quality mental health services.
