Since 2015, The Kennedy Forum has hosted The State of the Union in Mental Health and Addiction to hold our leaders accountable for real results and shine the spotlight on promising mental health solutions from across the nation.
This year, we are joining forces with the National Council for Behavioral Health to focus our attention on one pressing issue – the health of our nation’s children. Our State of the Union Thought Leader Session occurred on Monday, April 3rd, 2017 at the 2017 NatCon Conference in Seattle.
Watch the recording of this important conversation, beginning with the Thought Leader Session on Monday, and continuing across the three days in a series of workshops including:
