The day will include workshops, a luncheon and a keynote address by actress Mariel Hemingway.
As many know, the Hemingway family has been plagued by suicide, including those of author Ernest Hemingway, Mariel’s grandfather, and model Margaux Hemingway, her older sister.
Mariel Hemingway has become an outspoken advocate for mental health and dispelling the stigma of mental illness.
