Mental Health Advocacy: Inclusive Innovation Summit

January 10 | 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Are you a community member, representative of an organization or a business interested in discussing the inclusion of mental health in the innovation space?

Join us in a brainstorming session and take a hands-on role in the creation process for the 2019 Inclusive Innovation Summit. Utilize this opportunity to share your ideas, grow your network, and collaborate with others to create program proposals.

The Inclusive Innovation Team will be hosting three human-centered brainstorming sessions. This second session, Mental Health Advocacy, is designed to discuss the responsibilities of the innovation community to include and support individuals with mental illness or psychiatric disabilities.

If you are interested in participating in this conversation, we encourage you to share your experiences, perspective, and ideas. All youth under the age of 14 must be in the presence of an adult or family member age 14 or over. Photo permission forms will be available. Representation in photos is not required for attendance.

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Goals for Meetup:

1. Generate ideas leading to potential Summit proposals

2. Bring community together

3. Foster collaboration through brainstorming and discussion

4. Encourage attendees to maintain new connections after the session
