Fireside Chat on Mental Health: Gov. Holcomb & Colts Vice Chair/Owner

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb and Indianapolis Colts Vice Chair/Owner Kalen Jackson will discuss recent mental health initiatives by the team, the Irsay family, and the State of Indiana during Indiana Philanthropy Alliance’s Philanthropy Leads Dinner on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the Indiana Roof Ballroom (140 W.

IPA CEO Claudia Cummings will host Holcomb and Jackson for a Fireside Chat about the importance of raising mental health awareness and how to prevent and treat those who battle it every day. The Colts’ “Kicking the Stigma” initiative has raised awaress of mental health through its national campaign and funds provided to mental health nonprofits. Jackson’s civic engagement will also be highlighted, including her partnership in the Indiana Roundtable on Mental Health, which is co-chaired by former Eli Lilly CEO John Lechleiter and Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch.
