The Mental Health for US Unite for Change Forum: California is bringing our community together to talk about solutions to the most pressing issues facing our nation: mental illness and addiction. Now more than ever, it’s crucial that we unite for change.
This event, featuring a town hall with former U.S. Representative Patrick J. Kennedy and other national and local advocates, will provide the tools, training, and education you need to be an effective voice for these issues throughout the 2020 election. We’re also inviting 2020 presidential candidates to attend and discuss their plans for improving our mental health and addiction care systems.
