The forum will have more than 70 participants, including parents, clinical and scientific leaders and senior executives of American and Canadian companies. Guests will also include officials from diplomatic, government, military, law enforcement and local communities.

"Not enough families reach out for help and we want them to know they are not alone - there is hope and a second chance at life."

Their findings will be published in Work, Life, and the Mental Health System of Care, due out July 2008.
