Hope for Depression Research Foundation 
Holds
 Summer Weekend of Events
To Raise Mental Health Awareness

 

Southampton Village Plays Host to HOPE Summer Seminar, Luncheon, Shop-For-Hope & Race of Hope 5K Over the Weekend


 
Hope for Depression Research Foundation (HDRF)
hosted a series of events in Southampton to raise mental health awareness and kick off its eighth annual

 Race of Hope 5K to Defeat Depression, 

which took place
 Sunday.  

 

Friday’s first event, the Hope Summer Seminar, featured a discussion on “How to Talk to Friends and Family About Mental Health” from 11 am to 12 pm at the Southampton Arts Center. HDRF Founder & Chair Audrey Gruss moderated the discussion with acclaimed psychiatrist Samantha Boardman and psychologist Aliza Pressman.  Dr. Boardman is the author of the blog “Positive Prescription” and the book Everyday Vitality: Turning Stress into StrengthDr. Pressman is the Co-founder of the Mount Sinai Parenting Center, and Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Behavioral and Developmental Health, Kravis Children's Hospital, Icahn School of Medicine. 

 

Over 70 people attended the enlightening discussion with important takeaways about how to broach the subject of mental health with loved ones and how to identify the signs of depression.

 

The seminar was followed by a private luncheon at Tutto Il Giorno for the committee members of the Race of Hope. Over 50 committee members attended including Elyce Arons, Melissa Breitbart, Janna Bullock, Arthur Dunnam and Roy Cohen, Alan and Barbara Glatt, Peter and Jamee Gregory, Bob Mancuso, Mai Hallingby Harrison, Geralyn Lucas, Elizabeth Meigher, Anne Nordeman, Othon and Kathy Prounis, Stacey Pashcow, Scott Snyder and Sarah Wetenhall. 

 

Luncheon guests were seated at linen draped tables in the restaurant’s lush garden, where they were served an array of appetizers family style that included: Sardinian flatbread, an Italian charcuterie assortment, spicy tuna tartare, burrata, and an arugula salad with bell peppers, artichokes, and ricotta. entrees included a choice of chicken Milanese, seared salmon, spaghetti with scarpariello sauce, and a grilled mozzarella and sun-dried tomato flatbread. 

 

Following the Seminar, the Veronica Beard store hosted a “Shop for Hope” event, where guests enjoyed champagne and pastries as they browsed Veronica Beard’s latest collection, with ten percent of sales going to HDRF’s research mission.  All sales made from Thursday, July 27 through Sunday, August 6 at Veronica Beard in Southampton counted toward the donation to HDRF. Guests also picked up gift bags that featured SIO Beauty products. 

 

All events kicked off a weekend that culminated in the eighth annual Race of Hope 5K to Defeat Depression on Sunday, August 6. The Race was attended by more than 500 men, women, and children. HDRF Founder Audrey Gruss, and Board member Arthur Dunnam, both Hamptons residents, were Grand Marshals of the event. The Race also spotlighted two Teen Grand Marshals for the first time: Grier Henchy, the 17-year-old daughter of Brooke Shields; and Hayden Lucas, a high school senior and leader of the newly-formed HDRF Teen Task Force. The Race raised over $325,000 for research into new and improved treatments for depression and anxiety.

 

 

ABOUT HOPE FOR DEPRESSION RESEARCH FOUNDATION (HDRF)

 

HDRF was founded in 2006 by philanthropist Audrey Gruss in memory of her mother Hope, who struggled with clinical depression. The mission of the HDRF is to spur the most innovative brain research into the origins, medical diagnosis, new treatments, and prevention of depression and its related mood disorders – bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorder, and suicide.  The World Health Organization has declared depression as the leading cause of disability worldwide, and yet conventional medications today are outdated and do not fully work for 50% of patients.  HDRF is working tirelessly to improve the mental health landscape for every American.  The Foundation has provided more than $50 million through over 200 grants for breakthrough depression research that promises to transform the way depression is viewed, diagnosed, treated and prevented. Currently, HDRF has a potential new class of medication in pilot clinical trials at Mount Sinai Medical Center, Columbia University, and Stanford University. HDRF is also funding clinical trials into other novel therapeutics and diagnostic tests at Johns Hopkins, University of San Diego, and the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
