    Thanks so much for posting! Laurel House’s goal in offering this event is to connect as many young adults and their families with mental health services and support as early as they need it and to dispel the stigma around the topic which prevents many from seeking help or discussing their issues.

    We were also pretty excited to hear that Kevin was recently named an Influential Millennial by Parade Magazine, among the likes of Malala Yousafzai and Mark Zuckerberg.
