In the mental health and substance use field, Patrick Kennedy requires no introduction. We all know him for the political legacy for which he fought tirelessly (parity), for his passionate commitment to improved behavioral healthcare and increased brain research, and for bravely sharing his own experiences with bipolar disorder and addiction while in Congress.

Join Patrick in celebrating the National Council’s Awards of Excellence winners on May 6 at the Celebration of Excellence Awards Dinner during the 2014 National Council Conference in DC. Tables of 10 and individual tickets are available. Reserve your seat today. Questions? Email awards@TheNationalCouncil.org or call 202-684-3746.

Patrick will also be giving the final keynote of the Conference and Hill Day, on May 7. In his speech “We CAN Make Change in Washington: Standing Strong at Hill Day 2014,” he’ll offer insights into how the public policy environment for mental health and substance use is changing and describe our path forward to winning public policies that will strengthen our nation’s behavioral health safety net, ensuring that help is available to all Americans in need.
