The Kennedy Forum Annual Meeting 2018
Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Bending towards Justice: A Summit for Mental Health Equity
Today, far too many people dealing with mental health and addiction challenges experience the justice system in lieu of justice itself. We convene this year with purpose and power and love to advocate for the kind of justice struggling individuals and families deserve - a life free from discrimination and stigma, the opportunity to overcome health challenges in pursuit of a fulfilling life, the right to affordable healthcare that treats the whole person - body, brain and spirit.
Our Leadership Breakfast will honor those who have undertaken the journey to social change in pursuit of mental health justice. The daytime Community Forum will convene the best and brightest and brave, and address the question Dr. Martin Luther King posed fifty years ago- Where do we go from here?
Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.
Dr. Martin Luther King

Just as President Kennedy rallied the nation to dream big and set audacious goals 50 years ago, The Kennedy Forum seeks to set a new standard for the future of health care in the United States.
Our mission is big, and the stakes are clear. We seek to unite the health care system, and rally the mental health community around a common set of principles: Fully implement the 2008 parity law, bring business leaders and government agencies together to eliminate issues of stigma, work with providers to guarantee equal access to care, ensure that policymakers have the tools they need to craft better policy, and give consumers a way to understand their rights.
