“Russell laid the foundation for our inaugural conference on mental health. Our diverse audience comprised of professionals from various sectors, including workplaces, healthcare, human services, and youth-focused organizations. Lehmann’s message resonated deeply with everyone as he highlighted the significance of raising awareness, combating stigma, and acknowledging our ignorance. Regardless of their role, each attendee received a compelling narrative about cultivating awareness and fostering hope. Lehmann emphasized the transformative power of education, self-reflection to address biases, and compassion, underscoring our collective ability to effect positive change for both others and ourselves in the world.
