OPTIMUS Health Care is hosting its 2nd Annual Community Breakfast and Mental Health Symposium. The organization is continuing its bold initiative to bring the conversation about mental health to light with special emphasis on the mental health of women and girls.
The event will take place March 5 from 8 to 10am, with registration beginning at 7am. Following the breakfast, keynote speaker Lorna Luft will talk candidly about the challenges of mental illness, the impact it has on women and their children and the courage it takes to seek healing. Luft is a health advocate, Broadway star and author of two books: Me and My Shadows and A Star is Born: Judy Garland and the Film that Got Away. She is also the daughter of the beloved legendary star, Judy Garland.
