Lisa Kudrow Shows Support at the Open Mind Gala

The stars came out in support and honor for the work done at The Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA on Wednesday night (March 22) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. “Friends” veteran Lisa Kudrow was amongst the attendees. She had this to say of the patients of mental health in our community, “When I first joined, one of the things that struck me the most was how there aren’t nearly enough beds for people who need to be in a place that’s safe where they can be assessed and treated. That’s a huge mountain to get over. We need to raise awareness but there’s a lot to be done on every level beyond that.” The event honored songstress Demi Lovato with the Artistic Award of Courage for her work in advocating for those enduring mental health struggles. Kudrow went on to say of Demi, “Thanks to people like Demi Lovato and people who are writing about it and talking about their own experiences. She’s the perfect person to be honored because she is talking about her experiences and getting to the other side of it. I think that’s really important.”
