Max Gray (pictured above). Two funds established in his memory are supporting depression and mood disorder research.

On April 4, 2016, Laurie Davis Gray hosted a salon to raise money for fellowships in mood disorders. The Fellowship was established in memory of Laurie and Harrison’s son, Max Gray, who died at age 25 from depression in 2013. It is their aim to reduce the toll of depression and “take depression out of the closet.” Funds given to the Max Gray Fund for Depression will support both depression related research and fellows.
