    Founder, The Kennedy Forum & Co-Founder, One Mind

    A pioneer in mental health policy and advocacy, Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D–RI) served Rhode Island’s First Congressional District for 16 years, championing causes essential to the well being of all Americans. During his time on Capitol Hill, Rep. Kennedy was the author and chief sponsor of the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, groundbreaking legislation that guaranteed, for the first time in history, equal access to mental health and addiction services. Rep. Kennedy has been instrumental in the formation of two innovative organizations: One Mind for Research and the Kennedy Forum on Community Mental Health.
