Mental Health Conference Series

In All Community Members, News, Programs by NAMI Wood County


Mental health treatment is more than therapy and's treating the whole person! Spiritual, physical, and emotional health matter too for our mental wellness. Join NAMI Wood County and local therapists and panelists as we talk about a holistic approach to recovery.


This spring, NAMI Wood County will be hosting a one day, hybrid conference available to both clinicians and community members. Participants will learn different treatment techniques and working with populations that can be difficult to connect with, including clients involved in the justice system, children, and individuals experiencing suicidal thoughts  Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to learn about cultural competency and implicit bias as it relates to their practice as well as learn about some of the NAMI core programs offered.
