This conference focuses on bringing mental health awareness and education to anyone in the Kansas City area interested in breaking the stigma of mental health and working toward real change. In addition to community health, mental health, and social service workers, the conference provides vital information to business and human resources leaders and the general public.

• Engage with 30+ sponsors offering community resources and educational programs in the KC metro community.
• Earn contact hours by taking advantage of our diverse learning agenda.
• Enjoy a complimentary boxed lunch on Thursday and snacks on Thursday morning, and afternoon and Friday morning.
