The Kennedy Forum embraces with the ambitious task of creating a cohesive and clear agenda concerning the much-needed change in the treatment of mental health and addiction. Through an in-depth focus and analysis of payer accountability, provider accountability, integration and coordination of services, technology, and brain fitness and health, the Kennedy Forum, initiated by Patrick Kennedy, strives to transform the current state of affairs of mental health and addiction. Recognizing the opportunity to create lasting and impactful change for the way mental health and addiction is treated in our government, the Kennedy Forum aims to be a leader in this important civil rights movement. Changing the way the legislator treats mental health and addiction is a vital step towards fulfilling Flawless Foundation’s mission to revolutionize the way the world perceives, prevents and treats brain based behavioral challenges.

The Flawless Foundation had the great opportunity to partake and sponsor this vital conference, and we look forward to working with the Kennedy Forum to continue our shared goal of parity and real change to the mental health and addiction field.
