SEATTLE — On May 9, Tipper Gore will receive a Lifetime Vision Award from Path With Art for her advocacy around mental health and homelessness. Gore spent decades working to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. 

As the Second Lady during the Clinton Presidency, Tipper served as the Mental Health Policy Advisor to President Bill Clinton and convened the first-ever White House Conference on Mental Health in 1999. Since, Gore has continued her advocacy work, funding the flagship National Alliance on Mental Illness teen program Ending the Silence in 2017. 

Gore joins New Day Northwest to talk about her work and receiving the Lifetime Vision award.
