Save the Date! The 2015 Behavioral Health Faith Summit, a day of Community Education around the spectrum of Mental Health Concerns, will take place on Thursday, April 16, 2015.

Save the Date! The 2015 Behavioral Health Faith Summit will take place on Thursday, April 16, 2015 from 8:30am-2:45pm at Greensboro College (815 West Market Street, Greensboro NC).

A day of Community Education around the spectrum of Mental Health Concerns, the Summit hopes to bring together the behavioral health, faith, and educational communities to begin a long needed discussion around common concerns.

Panelists will design their own workshops  around their expertise as they comprise the “who’s who” in the practice community. Our role as educators is to put together an informative curriculum covering the spectrum of one topic: Behavioral Health, and the role the largest community support system, the faith community, plays and can play in reducing the stigma attached to brain diseases.   We also see the day as a time when people who share a common connection but don’t often connect, can do so. It is the beginning of community change –not the end.
