Welcome to CAHM

Dear friend,

A dozen years and we’re still walking, still shouting out how significant Todd’s short life was.  Every step speaks a “yes” for others whose hope is running out.  Speak up and step out for Todd’s tribe.  Make a difference by hanging on to life for someone who may be losing their grip.

Thank you! Connie

Parents channel grief into healing at mental health forums  

Before he took his own life in 2005, Todd Kennemer surrounded himself with “grace.” The 25-year-old musician and artist created a small stencil of the word and spray-painted it on the sidewalks near his favorite places, so wherever he went in his daily travels he’d always walk in grace.

Today, his parents — Rex and Connie Kennemer of Rancho Bernardo — are spreading Todd’s grace in their own way. Through their nonprofit Community Alliance for Healthy Minds, the couple help people with mental illness as well as their family and caregivers to find the strength, services and support to help them heal.

This Saturday at Cal State San Marcos, CAHM will host its 11th annual Forum for Healthy Minds. The free, all-day conference includes national speakers, targeted workshops and a resource fair. It is expected to draw more than 600 people.
