Actress Lorraine Bracco is Special Guest at Annual Meeting Event
Actress Lorraine Bracco will share her story of depression and mental health recovery at Conversations, The American Psychiatric Foundation’s feature event held during the Annual Meeting. The APF created Conversations 10 years ago to present well-known personalities who are candid about their mental illnesses and how mental health treatment works for them.
Bracco is probably most famous for playing the role of psychiatrist Dr. Jennifer Melfi on the HBO television series The Sopranos. She was diagnosed with depression and, in 2006, made the decision to open up to the public through her memoir On the Couch.
Free to all APA Annual Meeting attendees, Conversations will be held on Tuesday, May 17 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Kalakuna Ballroom, Level 4, Hawaii Convention Center.
The APA Annual Meeting held in May provides hundreds of scientific sessions, new research poster sessions, prominent guest speakers, and opportunities to network and obtain continuing medical education credits.
