There will be over 200 people attending, 12 sponsors, many exhibitors and so much more! It will be a great event, we hope to see many of you there.

Our audience will be comprised of people with lived experience of mental illness and their family members, as well as educators, clergy and other community members interested in the prevention and early detection of mental illness. Featured keynote speakers will include Paul Gionfriddo, President and CEO of Mental Health America, and author of the critically acclaimed book Losing Tim: How our Health and Education Systems Failed my Son with Schizophrenia.

When we think about cancer, heart disease, or diabetes, we don’t wait years to treat them. We start before Stage 4—we begin with prevention. When people are in the first stage of those diseases and are beginning to show signs or symptoms like a persistent cough, high blood pressure, or high blood sugar, we try immediately to reverse these symptoms. We don’t ignore them. In fact, we develop a plan of action to reverse and sometimes stop the progression of the disease. So why don’t we do the same for individuals who are dealing with potentially serious mental illness?
