"Transforming the Stigma of Mental Illness"
Steven Arkin is a staff neurologist with Saint Luke’s Health System. He was born in Chicago, graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and received his medical degree from Rush Medical College in Chicago. He completed his internship at Northwestern University, and his residency and fellowship at the University of Iowa. His areas of interest include neuromuscular disorders, stroke, migraines and concussion.
Steve has lived in the Kansas City area since 1994. He is married to Karen, also a neurologist at Saint Luke’s. They have a 20-year-old daughter, Jennifer.
Steve and Karen lost their son, Jason, to suicide in May 2015. Jason was a junior at Northwestern University, majoring in electrical engineering. Steve will speak to the effects of mental illness from the viewpoint of both a parent and a medical professional. He will address some of the facts regarding the prevalence of mental illness and ways to counteract the stigma, with the ultimate goal of raising awareness and reducing the potential endpoint of fatality.
