The Kennedy Forum’s 2nd Annual Illinois Forum & Gala will be held on November 11, 2015 at the Hilton Chicago.
The Annual Illinois Forum and Gala serves as tool to inspire, elevate and expand our vision of what is possible in mental health and addiction. We convene leaders from across business, government, academia and civil society for strategic dialogues which help map transformation and create a new future where where all persons are treated with dignity, inclusion, and receive the person-centered mental and physical care and support they need to thrive and achieve their goals.
Funds raised from the Gala support our work to improve the public discourse and end stigma, increase and improve integration of behavioral health into primary care, advance parity, support brain health and fitness in early childhood, and explore ways technology can improve access and quality.
The Forum portion of the event takes place from 8 am- 3:30 pm. The Forum is free, but invitation only. You can request an invitation here. The Gala takes place at 7 pm, proceeded by a reception at 6 pm. Gala sponsors, tables and ticket sales help support The Kennedy Forum and our work.
