The Kennedy Forum celebrated on October 23rd and 24th in Boston, MA and held in occasion of the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's Community Health Act brought together a number of individuals such as former Congressman Patrick Kennedy, Vice President Joe Biden, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Chelsea Clinton and our very own Dr. Kenneth Levy to discuss and advocate in favor of the forum's main goals of uniting the mental health community, pushing for further breakthroughs in policies having an impact on those living with mental illnesses, disabilities and addictions, removing the stigma surrounding mental illness, and achieving parity by treating the brain with the same importance with which we treat the body.
In regards to working with Congressman Kennedy, Dr. Levy commented that he "looks forward to future collaboration with Congressman Patrick Kennedy in working to establish parity guidelines that will assure those suffering from psychological difficulties receive the quality mental health care that they both need and deserve."
