MENTAL HEALTH - THE HEALTHCARE CHALLENGE OF OUR TIME
This presentation will highlight how one company, Johnson & Johnson, is helping to lead the transformation to empower each of us to be a leader in our own families and communities.
Date: Sunday, April 7, 2019
Place: Pretty Brook Tennis Club, 229 Pretty Brook Road, Princeton, NJ
WE ARE FACING A STAGGERING GLOBAL MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS THAT IMPACTS EVERY PERSON, FAMILY, AND BUSINESS. In the US alone, we are losing four times as many people every year to the twin scourges of suicide and drug overdose as we lost to HIV at the peak of the AIDS epidemic. Worldwide, the leading cause of death for teenage girls is no longer child birth — it’s suicide. This presentation will highlight how one company, Johnson & Johnson, is helping to lead the transformation of mental health care for the estimated 50% of us who live with mental illness, either as a patient or as a caregiver. The goal is to empower each of us to be a leader in our own families and communities.
OUR SPEAKER IS CRAIG KRAMER, Mental Health Ambassador and Chair, Global Campaign for Mental Health in Neuroscience External Affairs at Janssen R&D, a Johnson & Johnson company.

Key initiatives include a global leaders’ coalition to champion proven, scalable reforms, including “next-in-class” workplace mental health practices.
Prior to this role, Craig held a variety of positions in global corporate and government affairs at Johnson & Johnson and worked as a lawyer in the US Congress, a Washington, DC, law firm, and an international human rights organization. Craig is a graduate of Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs, the University of Michigan School of Law, and Harvard Business School’s General Management Program.
