9:00am – 10:00am CT

Join leading schizophrenia advocate, Kody Green (@schizophrenichippie), for an intimate discussion as he shares his schizophrenia journey, the realities and challenges of living with a serious mental illness, and how he found purpose in his personal experiences to become a patient advocate, public speaker, and content creator. Through his innovative videos detailing his daily life with schizophrenia in a new, raw way, Kody formed a large community of over 1.5 million followers across TikTok and his other platforms.

Hear about the power of sharing stories around mental health – in letting others know they are not alone, breaking the stigma around these conditions, and ultimately helping others have hope that recovery is truly possible. Breakfast and coffee will be served at the event, first come, first serve.

Kody Green has been compensated by Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine for his time participating in this session. The views and stories he shares about his experiences with schizophrenia are his own.
