Keynote Speaker: Alison Malmon is founder and Executive Director of Active Minds, Inc., a student-run mental health organization on the college and high school campus. She started the program in 2001, while a junior at the University of Pennsylvania, following the suicide of her older brother, Brian, one year earlier. Wanting to combat the stigma that caused her brother to suffer in silence and ultimately take his own life, she created a group on her campus that promoted an open, enlightened dialogue around the issues. Just two years later, Ms. Malmon formed the organization to develop and support chapters of the student group on campuses around the country. She currently serves as President and Executive Director of the non-profit organization, creating a unified national voice for young adults, in the mental health awareness movement.
