 Second Annual "Rep. Paul Luebke Legislative Champion in Mental Health Award" to be presented

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Rep. Paul Luebke, (D-Durham), on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Rep. Luebke had participated in most every Annual Legislative Breakfast on Mental Health since elected to serve in the NC House of Representatives 25 years ago. He was a true champion of mental health reform and had a heart to assist vulnerable and under-served populations. He will be missed. Everyone on the breakfast organizing committee extends heartfelt and sincere condolences to the family of Rep. Luebke.

The Legislative Breakfast on Mental Health Organizing Committee will present a special remembrance to Rep. Luebke during the breakfast and will also present the first annual "Rep. Paul Luebke Legislative Champion in Mental Health Award."


Members of NC General Assembly will serve on the panel, as well as other experts. The Annual Legislative Breakfast is a signature event organized in collaboration with area non-profit organizations and mental health agencies to bring together state and local elected officials for frank discussions and problem-solving around current mental health issues affecting residents across the state.
