Founded with the mission to make therapy available for all, Talkspace’s innovative use of technology in their HIPAA-compliant online therapy platform, has opened access to mental health services for many people who would otherwise not be able to seek help. We are pleased to honor Talkspace for their commitment to eliminating stigma and opening access to therapy for all who need and want it.

Ending the Silence Awardee
Paul Dalio

Paul Dalio, Awardee

Paul Dalio is an artist and filmmaker whose 2016 film Touched with Fire, starring Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby, was inspired by Paul’s journey struggling to turn his bipolar from a curse into a gift. A New York Times Critics’ Pick, the film was hailed as “an extraordinarily sensitive and non-judgmental exploration of bipolar disorder and creativity.” He served as NAMIWalks NYC 2018 Ambassador and ran the 2018 TCS NYC Marathon in support of NAMI-NYC. We are pleased to honor him with this year’s Ending the Silence Award.

Hosted By
