Please join us for this impactful evening of networking and knowledge. 

We all know someone impacted by mental illness. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), 1 in 4 adult Americans have some form of diagnosable mental illness in any given year; and the number among children is 1 in 5. Yet the shame around mental illness stops our friends, family and maybe even you from seeking help. Internationally recognized mental health consultant, educator and speaker, Hakeem Rahim, will lead us in a conversation around mental health, the impact of stigma on our lives and ways to move beyond the shame and silence to healing, health and wellness. Come join the conversation, learn the facts, get the resources and share in the message that “without mental health, there is no health,” or true success in your career and beyond

Hakeem Rahim is an internationally recognized mental health speaker, educator and advocate. In 2012, Hakeem began speaking openly about his 19-year journey with bipolar disorder. He rose from struggling with illness in college to become a leading mental health advocate.Through his advocacy work, Hakeem has spoken to law enforcement officials, individuals with mental illness and their family members and to over 60,000 middle school, high school & college students.  Hakeem has testified on Capitol Hill before several Senate and Congressional committees and panels, where he has shared his experience living with bipolar disorder. He has been featured in major news outlets for his advocacy work including USA Today and in print and television ads as part of New York City’s ThriveNYC Mental Health Awareness Campaign. He is a national board member of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance and a TEDx Speaker.

As always there will be networking, light dinner and of course- wine.
