The Hope for Depression Research Foundation is thrilled to announce that actress and writer Mariel Hemingway will receive the 2015 HOPE Award for Depression Advocacy at the Ninth Annual HOPE Luncheon Seminar on November 10th in NYC.
In Ms. Hemingway’s recent book Out Came the Sun: Overcoming the Legacy of Mental Illness, Addiction and Suicide in my Family, she bares her experience with depression and how it often co-occurs with alcoholism and substance abuse. Mariel was born just months after her famous grandfather, writer Ernest Hemingway, died by suicide – a painful legacy that has shaped her life. What’s inspiring is how Mariel has moved beyond grief to help others through advocacy.
This year’s event, focused on “Alcoholism and Depression: Dual Diagnosis, Dual Treatment,” will also feature Dr. Charles O’Brien, Founding Director of the Center for Studies in Addiction at UPenn. A special Award will also be given to the Caron Treatment Centers for their leadership in the field of integrated treatment of mood disorders and addiction.
Please join us at this important event to learn potentially life-saving information about the latest practices in dual diagnosis and treatment. Tickets are on sale now.
