Featured Speaker: Tamu Lewis

Tamu Lewis, MBA, is the Co-Founder and Board President of the Lee Thompson Young (LTY) Foundation , a non-profit organization dedicated to mental health education. She founded the LTY Foundation as a living legacy to her brother, actor, Lee Thompson Young, whom she lost to suicide in 2013.  Knowing that her brother struggled with bipolar disorder and suffered in silence, Tamu is passionate about promoting mental wellness in schools, communities, and organizations.  Her personal experience in helping families cope with mental illness includes her relationship with her mother-in-law and her oldest daughter, both of whom live with diagnosed mental illnesses. Tamu has gained invaluable life lessons and practical solutions to the challenges faced by families seeking to support their loved ones in times of mental and emotional crises.

In memory and honor of Lee Thompson Young
