The Kennedy Forum Illinois hosted an event last week to raise awareness and spur discussion about the stigma of mental illness and the gap in services for those affected. In November of 2014, Kennedy joined WTTW Chicago Tonight to talk about the event, his own personal struggle, and the aim of his advocacy work.

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.
