Annual Luncheon

Save the date for the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Depression Center’s 2018 Annual Luncheon on Friday, October 5, 2018 at noon in the Seawell Ballroom, Denver Center for Performing Arts.

This year’s theme, #Hooked: How Technology Impacts Mental Health, will address smartphones, social media and stress. Hear from leaders in Silicon Valley and psychology about how we got here, where we are going and what we can do.

Thank you to our 2017 Sponsors!

We are grateful to have so many passionate advocates for mental health in our community. At the fall 2017 Annual Luncheon, we raised $445,000 and brought together 650 people in support of mental health care, research and community programs in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West.
