The Child Mind Institute is once again joining Advertising Week New York, this year virtually, for a special main-stage conversation on mental health, “Great Minds Think Unalike.” In 2018 we were joined by Emma Stone, and last year by Jesse Eisenberg. This year Child Mind Institute president Harold S. Koplewicz, MD, will have a frank and funny conversation with actress, comedian, author, producer and mother Ali Wentworth about the challenges and opportunities of living with a mental health disorder like depression.

Ali Wentworth made a name for herself on the comedy series In Living Color and has appeared on such television shows as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Seinfeld, Head Case and The Oprah Winfrey Show, for which she was a correspondent. Her film credits include Jerry Maguire, The Real Blonde, Office Space, The Love Bug and It’s Complicated. Former host of The Daily Shot with Ali Wentworth on Yahoo, Wentworth currently stars in a TV series called Nightcap, which she created and wrote.

The Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Our teams work every day to deliver the highest standards of care, advance the science of the developing brain and empower parents, professionals and policymakers to support children when and where they need it most.
