Event Details

Opioid overdose and suicide—What can we do now to address these national emergencies?

Please join us for a very timely event and networking reception hosted by Education Development Center (EDC) and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention (Action Alliance) that will bring together public and private sector thought leaders to discuss potential solutions to reduce the burden of “deaths of despair,” restore hope, and save lives in communities across the country.

Distinguished panelists will discuss health care delivery, law enforcement, lived experience, faith, and the judicial system. Our discussion is especially timely given the pending October release of final recommendations of the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis.

Our speakers include:

Dr. Alex Crosby, Senior Medical Advisor on Suicide Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 

Dr. Arthur C. Evans, CEO, American Psychological Association

Ms. Brooke M. Feldman, Mental health and addiction recovery advocate 

Mr. Patrick Kennedy, The Kennedy Forum and President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis

Mr. Gary Langis, EDC substance misuse prevention consultant and voice of lived experience

Dr. Elinore F. McCance-Katz, Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

Dr. Jerry Reed, Senior Vice President, EDC and Action Alliance 

Ms. Kay Warren, co-founder, Saddleback Church

In light of the administration’s call to declare the opioid crisis a “national emergency,” we hope you can join us for this important conversation. Seating is limited, so we encourage you to register today.
