Mental Health Matters Day

Mental Health Matters Day

Please join our diverse coalition that has come together to plan and host a very special Mental Health Matters Day. 

We have some exciting speakers and entertainment booked including Scott Budnick, founder and president of the Anti-Recidivism Coalition and executive producer of "The Hangover" movie series, and Yashi Brown, a poet/spoken word artist and mental health advocate who has lived with bipolar disorder and author of "Black Daisy in a White Limousine: 77 Poems." Our event emcee will be Paul Gilmartin, former TV host of TBS' "Dinner and a Movie," stand-up comedian (Comedy Central Presents) and host of Mental Illness Happy Hour podcast. 

Also, be sure to bring your picnic gear (folding chairs, blankets, etc.) and stay for our food truck party following the speaking program. We will have DJ Anointed opening the event and DJ Joseph One closing out our day.
