Jeff Baker, Mental Health Advocate
will speak on
“Psychiatry — Directions 2014”
NAMI San Gabriel Valley presents mental health advocate Jeff Baker, who will speak on exciting new research projects like brain mapping that could change psychiatry and produce better outcomes in the future. He will discuss how the light this research sheds on our current approach to mental illness might help produce better outcomes now.
In Jeff’s own words: “I was drawn into the mental health arena through helping several family members and friends who started to wrestle with mental illness. In trying to help them, I was drawn in with an intense passion to study the research done on mental illness in an effort to better understand how to help. Over the last several years I have dedicated myself as a mental health advocate to provide information and resources that can help produce better outcomes.”
Before he became fully engaged as a mental health advocate and host of advancingmentalhealth.org, Mr. Baker was a successful business consultant and public speaker in the field of technology. He traveled extensively on consulting engagements and speaking engagements at large industry events.
The presentation will follow refreshments and the organization’s business meeting. All are welcome. There is no cost to attend, and there is ample free parking. For further information about this program, contact NAMI SGV at (626) 577-6697.
