Friends Who Are Going
Event description


We are thrilled to announce our upcoming Women's Mental Health Summit, made possible in part by a grant from the hope & grace fund, and our many generous local sponsors.

Join us for this unique 3 & 1/2 hour event, sponsored by a grant from the hope & grace fund, a project of New Venture Fund in partnership with the global women’s skincare brand philosophy, inc. We're bringing women (and men are welcome, too!) together to share stories of resilience and hope, in a supportive environment.

Our Women's Mental Health Summit, entitled: "Leading Ladies #LiveBrave" is featuring an all-female cast of Brave storytellers who will be sharing their true personal stories through poetry, original music and essay, a delicious lunch, plus keynote speaker Elizabeth Vargas of ABC's 20/20 and author of the book Between Breaths: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction. Following Elizabeth's fireside chat with Washington Post journalist Colby Itkowitz, Elizabeth will be hosting a book signing.

All attendees will leave with an awesome swag bag full of resources for mental health support and treatment, as well as fun items for selfcare, plus philosophy product samples.

Our goal is to bring together women from diverse backgrounds to share stories of resilience in the face of mental health and addiction struggles, to leave all attendees with a sense of hope and community, and to highlight local resources where women can locate support and help.

No one should feel alone when facing mental health challenges or addiction. Join us for this important event.
