Journalist & Mental Health Advocate Jane Pauley Will Speak in Atlanta

This week I’m looking forward to interviewing journalist and mental illness advocate Jane Pauley  when she speaks at the Atlanta Women’s Foundation‘s 19th annual luncheon –  Numbers Too Big to Ignore.  I’m attending thanks to the  Everywhere Agency.

Update: Due to actress and author Carrie Fisher’s illness, Jane Pauley has replaced her as the keynote speaker at the luncheon. The former TODAY Show Anchor and Dateline NBC Anchor has been open about her bipolar diagnosis. “Pauley is a member of the Board of Directors  of Children’s Health Fund, The Mind Trust and Encore.org and is a highly regarded spokesperson in mental health.”

As a mom who’s struggled off and on with depression, I’m interested to hear more about Carrie Fisher’s struggles as a child growing up in the lights of Hollywood. Her parents are the late actor Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. “Star Wars” series fans know Carrie Fisher for playing Princess Leia. I’m not as familiar with her for those movies. But for me she will always be Sally’s BFF, Marie, from “When Harry Met Sally.” Besides film and TV, Carrie Fisher has also had a career as a writer and author where she’s been painfully host about her battles with substance abuse, bipolar disorder and manic depression.

Talk back to me in the comments: What would you like me to ask Jane Pauley  at the 19th Annual Atlanta Women’s Foundation luncheon about mental health in the U.S.?
