Randi Silverman to Speak at Annual Spring Fundraiser for Lindner Center of HOPE

High Hopes, Inc. (an organization of caring volunteers serving Lindner Center of HOPE) will host their 9th annual spring fundraiser on April 27, 2017 at The Phoenix (812 Race Street – Cincinnati) to benefit Lindner Center of HOPE.

Randi Silverman – film producer and mother of three will be the keynote speaker at A Night of High Hopes, dinner and auction, on Thursday, April 27, 2017.  A cocktail reception and silent auction will begin at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner and a talk by Ms. Silverman at 7:00 p.m. at The Phoenix in Cincinnati.

A believer in the power of storytelling, Ms. Silverman used her real life experiences to co-write and produce the multi-award winning film, NO LETTING GO. Randi’s personal goal in sharing her story on the big screen was to create community conversations around the vitally important issues of youth mental health.

As the mother of three boys, one of whom happens to have a mental health disorder, Randi understands firsthand the impact that mental illness can have on a family. She is also the co-founder of a Parent-to-Parent Support Group for parents raising children who have issues with anxiety, depression, and/or mood disorders. Randi says she will continue to share her story until society understands that mental health is as important as physical health.

Proceeds from the event will assist bipolar and mood disorders research at the Center.  Research aids those suffering with bipolar and mood disorders worldwide.

Proceeds from the event will benefit bipolar and mood disorders research at the Center.  Research aids those suffering with bipolar and mood disorders worldwide. Mood disorders are extremely common – about one in 10 Americans suffer from a mood disorder, such as depression or bipolar disorder. In affiliation with Mayo Clinic, researchers at Lindner Center of HOPE are developing a research resource for bipolar disorder called a biobank.  Participants in this study provide samples of blood, complete an interview and questionnaires, and allow access to their medical records.  The Bipolar Biobank makes it much easier to conduct research studies about bipolar disorder because researchers have access to blood samples, along with patient data, from thousands of people all in one place.
