Mental Health Awareness & Resources Conference: Hidden in Plain Sight: A Collaborative Approach to Mental Health Awareness
April 26 (F)
8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

Held at the Boling University Center, UT Martin, 61 Mt. Pelia Rd., Martin. This event will bring awareness to mental health and suicide prevention Resources and services available in rural West Tennessee. Removing stigma and providing education are key to improving the quality of care for Tennesseans. The collaborative approach is to shed light on services often right in front of us but seemingly hidden because we don’t know where to access the services. All too often, people in need of services don’t know where to turn for access and support due to the stigma associated with receiving care for mental health needs.

Audience: For teachers, counselors, social workers, mental health workers, law enforcement, correctional officers, and anyone in a role who would like a deeper understanding about mental health issues and how to support individuals across the lifespan

Fees and registration: Cost is $15 general admission, $10 for students, and $250 for exhibitors. Pre-registration is required at http://www.rhat.org/event-3268079

Continuing Education Credits: Available for social workers only

Co-sponsors:

Tennessee Disability Pathfinder, the University of Tennessee at Martin, Northwest Council on Children and Youth, Tennessee System of Care, Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network, Rural Health Association of Tennesseee.
