Mind Shift: Silencing the Stigma, Changing Perceptions

October 20, 2015
Embassy Suites Oklahoma City Downtown Medical Center
1:00 – 5:30 pm Forum & Annual LOK Meeting
5:30 – 6:30 pm Reception
6:30 – 9:00 pm Dinner Program
Dress: Business Casual
Individual Tickets: $75

How we talk about mental illness matters.  It contributes to the stigma, funding issues, continuum of care, the criminal justice system. The goal of the forum is to attempt to change people’s perceptions of mental illness and ways to begin to make change in our state through federal, state, local, personal perspectives and solutions. The planning committee has been hard at work finalizing all the details.  Ted Streuli (Class XXIV) is the chair. 

From 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm forum highlights will include an overview of what mental illness is, experience simulations of what it’s like to suffer from various mental illnesses, learning the challenges and difficulties navigating through life with a mental illness, and hear from Terri White regarding the Smart on Crime Initiative.  Throughout the day personal stories will be shared. From 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm, the participants will have an opportunity to network with each other during the reception.  Immediately following the reception, Liza Long, author of The Price of Silence: A Mom’s Perspective on Mental Illness, will join us as our dinner speaker.  Mark your calendar now and plan to attend this event!
