The Honorable Patrick J. Kennedy

During his 16 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Patrick J. Kennedy fought to end discrimination against mental illness, addiction, and other brain diseases. He is best known as the lead sponsor of the groundbreaking Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, which was passed with bi-partisan support, and signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 3, 2008. The law provides millions of Americans, previously denied care, with access to mental health and addiction treatment by requiring insurance companies to treat illnesses of the brain, such as depression and addiction, the same way they treat illnesses of the body, such as diabetes and cancer.

In 2013, he founded The Kennedy Forum, a non-profit organization whose mission is to lead a national dialogue on transforming mental health and addiction care delivery by uniting mental health advocates, business leaders, and government agencies around a common set of principles, including full implementation of the Federal Parity Law. He co-authored the New York Times Bestseller, A Common Struggle, where he shared both his personal narrative and how he shepherded the Federal Parity Law. As co-founder of the non-profit One Mind (formerly One Mind for Research), Kennedy helped spark a global revolution in how scientists collaborate to study, diagnose and treat brain diseases.

Amid countless recognitions, meaningful partnerships, and political affiliations, Patrick J. Kennedy’s most important achievement continues to be leveraging his family legacy in the arenas of civil rights, mental health, and intellectual disabilities to advance the cause of social justice and health equity for all people. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, Amy, and their children.

Please join us at our Meal for the Minds luncheon on October 17th to hear Patrick Kennedy break the silence, fight the stigma and change minds. We are honored to share this opportunity with you.
