Mental Health KC Conference – Friday May 1, 2020

Mental Health Kansas City (MHKC) is a community conference focused on educating attendees about mental health and overall wellbeing.

This conference allows social service providers, business leaders, first responders, human resource staff and community members interested in learning more about mental health the opportunity to:

  • Attend breakout sessions focused on mental health, trauma and mental health corporate education and awareness.
  • Network with peers also interested in shattering the stigma surrounding mental illness.
  • Learn about community resources and education programs available.

This year, we’ll welcome Dr. Bowen White, M.D. as our keynote speaker.

Dr. White combines the talents and expertise of a physician, speaker, consultant, and author. In 1983, he founded the Department of Preventive & Stress Medicine for Baptist Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri and the Department of Wellness and Health Promotion before leaving to pursue a private practice and a career as a consultant and speaker.

As an organizational physician he is interested in the “people piece” of the workplace puzzle: Creating healthy work environments, team building, leadership, performance enhancement, stress, managing change, sales, ethics and communications. His programs emphasize the need for individuals to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing as he helps organizations create suspiciously healthy workplaces.

Learn more about Dr. White here.

We look forward to seeing you!
