Rochester Institute of Technology

5:30 - 6:30 pm Reception & Silent Auction

6:45 pm Program featuring Hakeem Rahim

Jessica Henderson lost her life to bipolar disorder at the age of twenty-one. In her honor, Jessica’s parents established a lecture series with help from NAMI Rochester. Each year the program strives to offer hope to all people affected by mental illness, increase community awareness, and erase stigma.


This year NAMI Rochester is thrilled to welcome Hakeem Rahim as our Keynote Speaker!

 About Hakeem…

Hakeem was the first African-American valedictorian at his high school and started college at Harvard University at the age of 17.  However, his life took a turn when he experienced his first manic episode at 18, which started him on a journey of living with a mental illness, causing him to leave school and be hospitalized. He eventually went back to Harvard to finish his degree and immediately went on to Columbia University for two masters degrees. In 2012, Hakeem joined the National Alliance on Mental Illness’ In Our Own Voice Program. In 2013, he began presenting in schools as the NAMI Queens/Nassau Let’s Talk Mental Illness ™ (LTMI) presenter, and in 2017, he launched his own school-based program, Breaking Through Stigma: The Highs and Lows of Mental Health. Through his work with students, Hakeem has spoken in over 150 educational institutions to over 50,000 students.
