The National Council for Mental Wellbeing is pleased to announce that former Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy will speak to Hill Day 2015 attendees on the power of advocacy and bringing mental health and addiction out of the shadows.

Kennedy is a tireless crusader for full parity in addiction and mental health care, ambitious investments in medical research that will revolutionize our understanding of the brain, and raising public awareness of the impact that additions and mental illness have on our families, our communities, and ourselves.

From his book tour for A Common Struggle: A Personal Journey Through the Past and Future of Mental Illness and Addiction, Patrick—via satellite—will bring his brave, unrelenting voice to inspire attendees to storm the Capitol with messages of hope and solutions for change.

Add your voice to his at Hill Day, October 5-6 in Washington, DC. Together, we speak up to make a difference. Register today.
