Today marks six weeks until the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health’s free statewide conference on faith, mental health and the African American community. With less than a month left until registration closes, it’s time to reserve your spot. Fill out the online registration form today to attend “Spiritual Crossroads: Faith, Mental Health and the African American Community” at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.
Eighty-five percent of African Americans identify as being spiritual and report using their faith as a way to address their mental health needs. According to the Handbook of Religion and Health, spiritual beliefs and practices help prevent many physical and mental illnesses, lessen symptoms and relapse rates, speed up recovery, and make conditions easier to manage.
This conference will help mental health care providers and faith leaders meet consumers at the crossroads to recovery and wellness.
The Spiritual Crossroads conference will introduce participants to the value of connecting faith, mental health and community resources. In addition, conference registration includes a complimentary breakfast, lunch and networking reception. Marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, social workers and certified peer specialists are eligible to receive free continuing education units from the Hogg Foundation and there will be a specialized conference track for clergy.
Space is limited, so register today.
