Speakers

Honorable Guest Patrick J. Kennedy

Former Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy (D-RI) was the lead sponsor of the landmark Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008. He is a lifelong mental health advocate and founder of The Kennedy Forum, a convening think tank focused on advancing evidence-based practices, policies, and programming for the treatment and prevention of mental health and substance use disorders. Patrick Kennedy is a Stability Leader and serves as a formal advisor to The Stability Network.

Stability Leader Michelle Yang

While navigating her own mental health journey, Michelle noticed a lack of stories told by women of color struggling with a bipolar diagnosis. Her determination to change that fact led her to write a memoir and leave her decade-long career in corporate America. Michelle’s story is one of triumph and resilience, assuring readers that you can still strive for your wildest dreams, even after receiving a mental health diagnosis.

Stability Leader Zachary Burton

Zack wouldn’t be alive today if it weren’t for one phone call to his mom. After receiving a bipolar diagnosis while completing his PhD at Stanford University, Zack had to start over, rebuilding his career, health, and identity. Zack is the co-creator of The Manic Monologues and a leader in the mental health community.

Stability Leader Jason Grant

Although he has three generations of mental health conditions in his family, Jason never thought that he would personally be affected by a mental health condition – until he was diagnosed with psychosis. Now, Jason says his life is exactly where it needs to be. Jason is a research associate at the University of Manchester studying ethnic inequalities in severe mental health conditions.
