Embrace Mental Health Breakfast

Join us at the second annual Embrace Mental Health Breakfast, on May 18th, 2023 at 7:30 am! Supporters will have the opportunity to learn about the impact of Presby Psych’s services; including free and reduced-rate sessions for first responders.

Sergeant Donnie Penix – Keynote Speaker

Sgt. Penix is a second-generation Charlotte police officer with 26 years on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. He has served as a patrol officer, on the SWAT team, ALERT Team, VCAT, in the Canine Unit, as a detective, and is now assigned to the Airport Division where he oversees the Explosive Detection K9 Unit and the Narcotics Interdiction Unit. He has been in many harrowing situations, but none as frightening as suffering a mental health crisis. Join us and hear how Sgt. Penix has addressed his crisis and is now supporting other officers and Presby Psych’s mission of helping all those in need.
