Promoting Peace Conference: Shining a Light on Mental Health and Wellness

Promoting Peace

What is a mental health crisis, and how can we effectively intervene? How does trauma impact attachment, relationships and behavior? What's it like living with a mental health diagnosis? What do people living with a mental health diagnosis want us to know? Suicide and other hard conversation.

The community is invited. We all can play a role.

Please join us as we learn how we can more effectively, both in our professional and personal lives, respond to people living with mental health symptoms, and learn about local resources that support recovery and wellness!

Pick a location:

Both start at 8:30 a.m. Free lunch provided. Continuing Education credits available. Please arrive at 8:00 a.m. for registration. You can register by clicking  here
