Mark your calendars!

Mental Health America and the Mental Health Association in Tulsa, Oklahoma have announced that Jessie Close, sister of actress Glenn Close, will be the keynote speaker at the Clifford Beers Awards Dinner at the 2012 National Zarrow Mental Health Symposium & Mental Health America Annual Conference on Thursday, September 20, 2012.

A couple of years ago, Jessie and Glenn launched Bring Change 2 Mind, a non-profit mental health organization geared toward helping raise awareness about mental illness as well as providing information and support to people with mental illness.

Not only have the women dealt with depression and alcoholism in their family, but Jessie was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 1990 (most recently, Bipolar 1 with psychotic tendencies) and her son, Calen, has schizoaffective disorder.

During the event, Jessie will talk about her diagnosis, recovery, and resiliency – and undoubtedly inspire everyone there!

If you’d like to be among that group, head over to the registration page.
