As First Lady of NYC, Chirlane McCray has redefined the role of First Lady and manages a robust portfolio. Nationally recognized as a powerful champion for mental health reform and named a 2019 “World Health Organization Champion” and a 2020 “Empire Whole Health Hero” by Crain’s New York, Ms. McCray created ThriveNYC, the most comprehensive mental health plan in any city or state in the nation. She leads the Cities Thrive Coalition, chairs the Mayor’s Fund to Advance NYC and co-chairs the NYC Commission on Gender Equity and NYC Taskforce on Racial Inclusion & Equity.

We were privileged and excited to have the opportunity to have a conversation with the First Lady at our US Summit recently to get more details on the amazing work she has been doing in mental health, how she achieved such an incredible amount in such a short space of time and her hopes and dreams for the future.
