Speaker: Kate Mattias – Executive Director, National Alliance on Mental Illness - Connecticut
Topic: “The Silent Tsunami in the Workplace: Mental Health”

Kate Mattias, Executive Director, NAMI Connecticut (National Alliance on Mental Illness) has a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Columbia University in New York City and a Law Degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law in Hamden, CT. She has been with NAMI Connecticut since 2006. 

In that time she has brought a strong focus on: Education courses and support groups for families with children and adolescents who have mental illness - including a Spanish language course; Resources and supports for individuals living with mental illness with an increasing emphasis on young adults and veterans and their family members; Schools and educators to offer information and resources on early detection and early intervention of childhood mental illness; and addressing health inequity issues related to mental health.

The organization provides more than 75 community presentations a year on topics ranging from children’s mental health to the mental health of older adults.
