The Kennedy Forum

Founded in 2013 by former Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.), The Kennedy Forum helps shape a national dialogue on uniting mental health advocates, business leaders, and government agencies towards a common goal.

The Kennedy Forum was launched in celebration of the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s signing of the landmark Community Mental Health Act.

How They Do This

The Kennedy Forum hosts several events, summits, and initiatives to help raise awareness for the importance of mental health and how to best secure it in an equitable way. Grapevine helps the Forum spreading their message across our network of influencers and content creators.
