2018 Luncheon Recap

We are grateful to have so many passionate advocates for mental health in our community. At the sold out 2018 Annual Luncheon, we brought together more than 700 people in support of mental health care, research and community programs in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West. This year’s theme, #Hooked: How Technology Impacts Mental Health, addressed smartphones, social media and stress with Jean Twenge, PhD, author of iGen, and Nir Eyal, author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products.
