17th Annual Community Mental Health Conference
On Thursday, November 8, 2018, the Mental Health Association in Delaware will be hosting our 17th annual Community Mental Health Conference. CMH is more than a conference; it is a one of a kind event that started off at Grace United Methodist Church in Wilmington, Delaware on October 12, 2002. Originally coined the People of Color Mental Health Conference, this gem began to shed light on the topic of mental illness, as reported by the Surgeon General, as a public health concern and to end the stigma associated with it in our communities.
The conference will take place at the Chase Center on the Riverfront from 9:00am-3:00pm and our conference theme, “Trauma – Across the Behavioral Health Spectrum”, will focus on identifying and coping with trauma in its many forms. With Keynote Address delivered by Pamela E. Freeman, LPC, “Trauma: Moving from Surviving to Thriving”, the message is clear and accessible to both health care providers and anyone searching for a deeper understanding of the complex nature of trauma. Join us and be a part of the important healing process on a personal and community focused level or as a professional with a separate track of workshops offering CEU’s. Each year we remain dedicated to creating an enriching and interactive day that is guaranteed to inspire you with strong connections, access to resources, and a renewed call to action to make a difference.
Attended by all walks of life from social workers, students, educators, community advocates, nurses, faith-based communities and those with lived experience, we hope that you may find the time to come join us for this event. Admission includes hot lunch and full day of workshops and networking.
