Purpose, Passion, and Partnerships: Blueprint for Re-Imagined Systems of Care
Michael O’Neil is a thought leader who is passionate about patient and family engagement. Following his own treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, he emerged inspired with a vision for transforming the patient experience. Michael launched Get Well Network in 2000 to tackle an unaddressed problem: empowering patients to take control of their healthcare journey. GetWellNetwork has since engaged 100+ million patients in 5 countries. Mental health is health, and unfortunately, we see many similar challenges of patient voice, choice, and access to high-quality services across our mental and behavioral health systems. As we face the most vexing mental health challenge of our lifetime, Michael will share a new vision for what it will take to develop reimagined systems where all young people and families can access the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
