NBC News’ Kate Snow and “A Million Little Things” Creator and Executive Producer DJ Nash to headline

Mental Health for US and the Institute for Addiction Science at the University of Southern California (USC) are partnering with 20 California-based groups to host the Unite for Change Forum: California, on January 13, 2020. The event, part of a grassroots effort of the largest-ever collaboration of mental health groups around a national election, will address the intersection of national mental health and addiction policy priorities and the 2020 presidential campaign.

To help spur conversation around these topics, presidential candidates are invited to attend and engage the audience of California families, students, and advocates around their plans for improving mental health and addiction care in the United States. Kate Snow, weekday anchor for MSNBC Live, Emmy-winning national correspondent, and anchor of “NBC Nightly News” Sunday edition, will moderate discussions with experts and advocates on our nation’s mental health and addiction crises. DJ Nash, creator and executive producer for the ABC primetime drama “A Million Little Things” and a mental health advocate, will serve as event emcee.

Representative Patrick J. Kennedy will deliver remarks highlighting how policymakers can make reform a national priority.  

The forum will be open to the media and livestreamed on the Mental Health for US Facebook page.
