Actor to Speak at Mental Health Fundraiser

Emmy nominated actor Jeffery Tambor, from TV’s Arrested Development and The Larry Sanders Show, will be the keynote speaker at the 2nd Annual Symposium and Luncheon at 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 14 at Sinclair Community College.  The event benefits the Greater Dayton Mental Health Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to quality mental health services.

Tambor is a veteran of film, television and the Broadway stage.  His presentations are interactive, humorous and relatable delving into his family’s struggle with mental health issues. 

“Tambor uses his overwhelming love for life and the lessons learned along the way as sparks of inspiration for his keynotes,” said Foundation President Stan Eichenauer.  “He speaks from the heart, sharing his personal truths as a way to inspire audiences young and old to embrace human connectivity.”

The half day morning symposium entitled, “The New 3 R’s: Respect, Recovery, Resiliency” will focus on the stigma that exists, including how Hollywood portrays mental health and addiction.
