LGBT People of Color Mental Health Conference

October 5, 2016 @ 9:00 am - October 6, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Free

IN-MY-MIND-Official-Flyer-791x1024

 

This two-day conference will focus on recognizing and articulating the mental health needs of LGBT peoples of color through the collective strength and wisdom of clinicians, consumers, academics and advocates to confront the issues affecting these communities, often compounded by shame and stigma. In My Mind continues what began last year, to encourage that unique cross pollination of ideas, challenges and solutions for healing between clinicians and academics, and consumers and advocates.

Both days will begin with presentations to establish common starting points, to be followed by concurrent small group workshops and panel discussions, some geared for clinicians and academics, and others for consumers and advocates. At the end of the second day, we will have a “Community Speak Out”, where conference participants will have a chance to express their thoughts on the necessary next steps for improving this conference and addressing the mental health of LGBT people of color.
