The year 2020 has been a time of loss, grief, collective pain, and significant life changes for so many of us, and it is especially important during these times that we all prioritize our mental health and wellness.  As such, we are pleased to announce our first Black mental health and wellness conference with the theme, From Surviving to Thriving which will be held on November 7, 2020 from 12p-5:00p

This conference is a half-day of interactive sessions focused on exploring the various ways that mental health in the Black community has been negatively impacted over the course of the last year. Attendees will leave the conference feeling empowered to heal during these emotionally challenging times.
