Good mental health is an essential component of overall health and well-being and is often overlooked in both the community and the workplace, even though the statistics are staggering. Mental health disorders are the leading cause of disability. These disorders affect people from all walks of life, regardless of age, gender, economic status, or ethnicity. Whatever our situation, we are all at risk of poor mental health at some point or stage in our life.

Join us for complimentary food, live music and the opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas as John speaks about the challenges his brother faced and how we can stay educated and informed.

Our special guest is John Lennard who will speak about My Brother, The Alternative Playbook. John Lennard's journey was inspired from the close relationship with his brother. The insights his brother had, the difficulties he overcame, and the world of possibilities he shared opened and challenged Lennard to see the world in a new way.
