About this Event

The Lyceum centers around presentation of the distinguished "Arlene Chandler Award" which is given annually to an outstanding leader in the field of mental health in San Luis Obispo County. The 2020 award will be bestowed upon Elie Axelroth, retired Clinical Psychologist and former Director of Clinical Counseling for the Health Center at Cal Poly. More recently, Elie has become an acclaimed writer and non-fiction author with the publication of the award winning novel "Thin Places" in 2015. Elie continues to write and share her creative works through her blog and local philanthropy.

This year's Lyceum will also feature a keynote address from local Psychiatrist, Dr. Michael McGee who will offer a snapshot and sneak preview of topics covered in his upcoming book, "Love Deficit Syndrome."

General Overview:

The Lyceum is held during National Mental Health Awareness Month (May). The Lyceum awards & education luncheon has several dimension but pivots around the honoring of a local leader in mental health, an aspiring associate-trainee level therapist, and a keynote address from an innovative voice in the field of Psychology. Lyceum offers continuing education credits for mental health professionals, non-profit/social service sector networking, and awareness of Community Counseling Center's (CCC) leadership and unique history on the Central Coast.

All proceeds benefit Community Counseling Center (CCC) Training & Education Programs.

A primary element of the Lyceum is the Arlene Chandler Award ceremony. Arlene Chandler was a critical proponent, advocate and pioneer in the development of mental health counseling services for the underprivileged in San Luis Obispo County. Arlene was an active contributor and visionary from the agency’s inception in 1968 and on throughout her life. From her role as a volunteer marriage family therapist, member of the Board of Directors, enthusiastic fundraiser, to her all around progressive mindedness, Arlene is a true inspiration to us all, and her legacy of compassionate leadership is remembered and reflected upon annually at the Lyceum.
